Eakachai Floating Houses

Eakachai is in a national park about an hour north of Chiang Mai.  We didn't quite know how to get there and after a little investigation decided the only way was to rent motos...small motorcycles.  This doesn't sound like much except one, we were driving on the left side of the road, two, I don't ride on motos, and 3 Ty hadn't ridden a bike in a while especially in traffic on the left side of the road!!!

The lake

Houses are built on stilts in this part of the world

I love the thatched roofs

The long boats with the car engines that take us to the houses

Notice the 8 horse engine on this one!

The little floating city

Where we stayed

Lovely places at the other end of the dock, a nice swimming area

Rice fields on the way back to Chiang Mai
