Ok, I love a theme.  I also love a one-of-a-kind hotel.

After checking out of our rice barge at the Imperial Boat House Beach Resort in Koh Samui, we flew to Chiang Mai in northern Thailand and checked into our rice barn at the Tanita House.  Yes, for $75/night, we have an entire renovated barn to ourselves.  What a find!

Travel TipTravel Tip 40:  Read reviews on Tripadvisor.com

In selecting lodging for our trip, I consulted guidebooks, but I mostly relied on Tripadvisor.  So far, I haven’t been disappointed.  Remember, when using the website, check all the lodging categories, including B&B/Inns – not just hotels.

During the remainder of the afternoon, we did some lite sightseeing.  We’re reaching our wat/temple limit.

From Nathan:  There were many Buddhist temples, which, to me, all looked the same.  We also went to the night market, where I got ice cream and Mom got silk pillow covers.
