Sunday Luncheon Run : "The Other Side of the Tracks"
Sunday 28th January

For the first meeting of the year we will meet as usual at Origin Swiss Cafe, on the Night Safari Road at the junction with the Hang Dong Road, for coffee, breakfast and conversation, before heading off in convoy at about 11:30am.
Our destination is the charming Suksatan Resort in Lamphun, where a delicious set Thai lunch, served family style, has been arranged for us, as has reserved parking.

Route – from Origin turn right onto the 108 and then left at the lights onto the 121, cross the lights at the 106 junction and immediately pull over to regroup.

Follow member Rex B off the 121 and turn right down along the side of the railway tracks. Keep a look out for the wild flowers growing in the embankments, including several varieties of native orchids. We shall then cross the tracks and continue heading south past the small local railway stations of Saraphi (very picturesque) and Pasao.

Shortly after which we reach the Resort, which is well signposted on the approach, here we make a left turn opposite a small railway crossing and immediately right onto a short unmade drive to the resort. Here we shall literally be on the other side of the tracks!

Afterward lunch you have the opportunity to relax, look around and sample some of their excellent coffees, smoothies and fruit drinks (not included in your lunch bill). Learn how the Wisriworaphat family has developed the land and the resort to the benefit of the local community. Have a look at their delightful accommodation; it's just a short run from town for a chill out weekend!

Return at leisure, should you wish to exit onto the S.E. side of the city, cross back over no later than where you came in! This will give you access to the Outer and Middle Ring Roads East bound. To do so West bound continue North and exit at the appropriate junction under the overpasses or to reach the railway station just continue North.

If you would like to come along please let Rex know on rex@classiccarsoflanna.com
