Apparently the proliferation -- okay, three in a row -- of smart new guesthouses is to cater for fruit merchants who come up to the valley during the various seasons to trade.

The third guesthouse, furthest from Phrao (though they are all literally next door to each other), was the only one that made an effort to put an English-language sign outside, so they got our business but, if full, we’re sure the neighbours are just fine too.

There’s a U-shaped line-up of 12 bright pink concrete chalets around a carpark, plus a small reception and cafe. All chalets are identical and while low on decoration, they are spotlessly clean and come with cable TV, fridge, air-con, WiFi and hot shower. Be warned that the WiFi gets a bit poorer the further away from reception you go. Expecting the usual instant coffee and convenience store toast as the complimentary breakfast, we were about to leave when the owner informed us, ‘Breakfast is ready!’ She’d made a huge kai tum, kind of a baked omelette with a spicy bolognese sauce, chilli paste and rice. It was our best breakfast in a long while! If you’re just passing through Phrao or don’t have time to make it out to Doi Farang, this will do the job very well.
