Ban Rak Thai village is located around a small lake and is famous for its mainly U-Long tea plantations. Here you can have a pleasant stay in the mountains, enjoying tea and Chinese cuisine. On the other hand, do not expect a lively nightlife. And note that the photo that we see the most (including mine) with the Chinese houses among the tea plants is the picture of a hotel in Ban Rak Thai, the Lee Wine Ruk Thai Resort
. I did not take a lot of pictures because unfortunately we only had an hour without rain during our stay up there.
If there is a local bus (see below) to come to Baan Rak Thai, and that's how I got there, I recommend you to have your own transportation to be able to go to see the Pha Suea waterfall or Pang Ung.
