Here’s your opportunity to try out something a little different for Chiang Rai in 2013.
It’s a walking group that’s just a walking group.
Whether you’re local, a transplant or a ‘just passing through on vacation’ , if you’re looking to get out away from the hustle of town, enjoy some of the sights and scenery of this area - and get a bit of exercise, then go along and try out this new venture. You can be assured of a friendly welcome.
When: On the fourth Saturday of each month.
Time: Usually in the morning, though starting times will vary according to season and the individual walk that is proposed for the month.
Length of walk: each will take about one and a half to two hours to complete at a nice comfortable pace with plenty of pauses to look at scenery and allow for conversation. Some may take longer –but that will be because there might be more to look at rather than more kilometers to cover.
Where will the walks be: They could be anywhere in Chiang Rai province, but the majority will probably be within 15-20 km of the centre of C.R. town. You’ll need a taxi or your own transport to get to the starting points, but for sure, you'll make friends and get a lift back to your hotel.
Aims of the walking group: To get out and about and visit both old favourites and new areas to walk in, suitable for all ages and abilities. There will be a trail to follow, but each walk will simply be led by the person who has found the trail for that month. It will not be marked beforehand with paper or the like.
To enjoy the countryside/urban-scapes of Chiang Rai province
To meet up with friends and to make new acquaintances.
What to bring and wear: water, sun hat, sun-cream, casual clothing - and most walks will be suitable for walking-type sandals or trainers (if it’s not, you will be informed before-hand).
Most walks will give you the opportunity to go on afterwards to a nearby café or eating place for the opportunity to continue conversations, have a snack and refresh yourselves, if you wish to do this.
