Monday 16 January: I'm staying at Rabieng Rim Nam Guesthouse which has all I expect of a traditional teak-built house and more. The delightful little restaurant overlooks the breezy river and the owner plays Leonard Cohen music each evening. Taking an amble around most of the temples in town I end the day at Khao Luang cave, filled with hundreds of Buddha statues of all shapes and sizes.
Tuesday 17: It's a steep climb to the top of Khoa Wang (Palace Hill) which is topped by temples and palaces but the sights and views are just reward.
