A good point to visit the northern Mekong Route
Difficult to communicate if you don't speak Thai
In a nutshell
a nice retreat from the tourist swamped sites
I don't remember name of the shop but you may find it in Charoenrat Road. If you are in Palace hotel, you have to cross the bridge and then go right. Along the road you see a shop that sell texiles and little box in silver.
What to buy: What a pity, no more good ikat, no more handmade texiles. But you may buy foulards and silver.
What to pay: Foulard: 100 - 200 THB
Silver box: 160.
Remeber that you buy more than one thing you may ask for a discouny, even if vendor don't want to bargain.

Address: Charoenrat road
If you drive a car, the best way to visit this country, choose a 4-wheel, especially in rainy season, even if you don't plane to go in National Parks. Road in Thailand are generally good, but in mountain there are often slope and the street may became dangerous

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: One thick warm clothing for the cold weather (particulary winter season)
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: It's sold at the top but better to have your own - particularly medical supplies for constipation, vitamin C etc.
Photo Equipment: I see many people carrying their tripods - so you might consider bringing them along.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: You are strongly advise to bring the following:
- anything to prevent leeches from coming to leech on you (salt, lighter, thick long socks)
- mosquito repellent (better still, get insect repellent)
Miscellaneous: Prep up your batteries, multi-plugs or adapters (maybe screw driver too) for your tech gadgets.
