There are obviously other areas in Chiang Rai that have some good bars, restaurants etc but this map is about Jetyod Road only. It is the only area where there is P4P for available as far as I know but as I have stated elsewhere, P4P is not available in all the bars. So please do not assume it is.

In my experience there are not many condominium developments in Bangkok that allow pets. The reasons are smells, mess, and noise.
