My first trip to the “Golden Triangle” was twenty-nine years ago (June 1988), and, as I have kept pictures of this early sojourn, I “revisited” the region, following the same itinerary, searching for the places and folks that I had seen at that time. I was lucky to be able to localise most places depicted in my photographs and, even more, to be able to meeting with most portrayed people.

An epic journey along an historic, mysterious and controversial river stretch, a trip through one of the most difficult Middle Mekong itineraries. Its a fun adventure with a bunch of bikers (bikes on boat) skipped by a skilled captain with a reliable barge.

If you are nostalgic of “soap boax” carts, they are still used, in North Thailand for a thrilling competion. This fancy tradition is linked to the Hmong New year celebration, particularly in Chiangmai’s Maerim district. A link to my photographic story can be found on FB-Biking hobo:
