We went to the Traditional Northern Thai Dinner tonight (I don’t remember the whole name, though it starts with a “K”). Don’t bother. It’s not worth the money.
The meal consists of 7 different dishes – most are not particularly interesting – and rice. You sit on the floor while you eat (it is carpeted and slightly cushioned) and listen to live traditional music. I liked the music, though often it reminded me of cats in a burlap sack..
After the music, there are all sorts of traditional dances – most are not really worth seeing, and the explaination which is in English isn’t very understandable.
To top it off, it’s expensive, and the price doesn’t cover drinks of any kind, so we spent nearly 1000 baht on the whole thing.
Oded is stuck with some problem from work, but we might go to the night market after.. Oded want’s to find me a decent backpack for the trek tomorrow.. I hope it’s better than the dinner!
