Tieland to Thailand - Trip to the Nest in Chiang Dao - 2015

"We cruise north to the Nest in Chiang Dao, Thailand for a few days of peace and relaxation . After a brief, but beautiful motorbike ride from Chiang Mai to Chiang Dao, we find what we are looking. The Nest 1 offered us seclusion, quiet, and great western food. The next day, after decompressing in a a double bungalow, we step it up and go for a family suite at Nest 2. We are blown away by the surroundings and the amazing (and very spicy) Thai food."

Chiang Dao Nest in the rain - Retirement Thailand - July 2016

"Chiang Dao is slightly more than an hour's drive from Chiang Mai, Thailand. Chiang Dao is one of the magical places in Northern Thailand, blessed with dramatic mountains, wonderful cloud formations, superb climate and lush countryside. The Nest restaurant and resort complements Chiang Dao perfectly, and shows it as its best. Even in the rain..."

Hairy Bikers - 2013/14

Asian Adventure S1 E3 includes Chiang Dao, Northern Thailand.
Start of Chiang Dao part
Start of Northern Thailand part
We hosted the Hairy Bikers (Popular British TV Chefs) and film crew while they were filming in Chiang Dao.
Wicha appears briefly in the Lisu village segment.
Pretty much all of the footage of the bikers riding on mountainous / forested roads was filmed in the Chiang Dao area. This is dotted about throughout the program. Unfortunately a part where the Bikers are filmed emerging from their cabins and enjoying a rice soup breakfast at Chiang Dao Nest 2 (where they stayed) didn't make it into the final edit.
Program first aired: BBC2 Thursday 27th Feb 2014 (filmed July 2013)
