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!!!
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!
Leaf thatch roof
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
