Episode 210 - Keep Your Vibes Right (Ghostly Scarecrow of Chiang Rai)
It Gets Weird
Hello there friends and weirdos! In this one the Weird Boys discuss a being known as the Ghostly Scarecrow of Chiang Rai. What exactly did the villagers of Huay Nam Rak see that fateful morning in 2005? Was it an alien? A cryptid? A horrible, hairless, wrinkly hell Furby? Furthermore, what does this weird li'l yellow guy want from the humans who witnessed him that day? If you ask us, we think the answer lies somewhere deep within the wonderful products and savings of Spirit Halloween stores and we urge all our listeners to (safely) check out Spirit Halloween this August.
It's time for a new episode of My Club Series !! This time I bring Alec Peeples on the show to discuss about Singha Chiang Rai United. What's football here like from the eyes of an American fan? Why did he choose Chiang Rai? Also, what are his thoughts on the club this season? Hear all of that and more in this episode !!
We take you to one of our favorite places on our trip to Thailand, Chiang Rai! Situated in the northern part of Thailand, this beautiful, mountainous region is the more laid back cousin to the larger city of Chiang Mai. We had such a fantastic time exploring the rural countryside, amazing waterfalls and unique temples...
A little shorter Episode this week than normal, but still a good one.On todays episode we travel back in time 14 years to when a rural Thailand farming community claimed to have an encounter with a small, red-eyed, yellowish entity frolicking in the air above the fields. Was it an alien? A ghost? A cryptid? Or was it a figment of the villagers imagination?#JoinTheObscureShoutouts this week toWeird Tales Radio ShowSpell Con Tickets - Click HereFollow MeInstagram - @obscureanomaliesTwitter - @OAnomaliesFacebook - Obscure AnomaliesWant Merch? - Check out my Threadless StoreProud Member of Straight Up Strange ProductionsSourcesThe Rice Field Scarecrow Encounter - PhantomsandMonsters.comThe Scarecrow of Chiang Rai, Thailand - Cryptopia.com
Cycle Tour Northern Thailand from Bangkok to Chiang Rai
Active Travel Adventures
Thailand has always been a go-to travel destination, and tourists are drawn to its capital, Bangkok. Instead of going that route, Emily Sedgwick and her husband chose to explore the rural parts of Northern Thailand through a cycle tour from Bangkok to Chiang Rai. They enjoyed every part of their guided tour going through hills, riding narrow boats through mighty rivers and visiting local villages. Emily and her husband got to see the best Northern Thailand has to offer like ethical elephant sanctuaries and sumptuous local dishes. Since they were exploring Thailand by bike, they got to observe the local people and their surroundings even more. Through their journey, Emily realized that Thailand has something for everybody, and she shares how you can have an amazing trip to Thailand as well.

In the 2nd episode of the podcast series on my trip to Thailand and Laos is described from the 3rd to the end of 7th day of my stay at the enchanting Chiang Rai where I definitely stayed longer than I expected. I have visited some amazing places in terms of both natural beauty and human creation. I also went to the what is called “The Far North of Thailand” on the borders with Myanmar and later the same day to the Golden Triangle, where Thailand meets both Myanmar and Laos. I saw the scorching White Temple, the agricultural beauty of Singha Park, the Tham Luang cave where on July some children were trapped in this shocking story, the Chinese Temple with the huge Female Buddha, the Chiang Rai beach, I met and had a small chat with a lady from the Acca tribe, I visited a waterfall in the jungle, I roamed in one of the most famous tea plantations, the Choui Fong, I drove more than 160 klm the last day and visited plenty of other interesting places. In the meantime I also had a health issue that left me no choice than to visit a Thai hospital where I also got an idea on how their health system is working.

Solo Travelling in Thailand and Laos 1: Bangkok, Khao San Road, Chiang Rai, Blue Temple
The beginning of the podcast series for my tour of Thailand and Laos. In the first episode I describe my first 4 days in the country of the people who smile a lot. Especially from Bangkok and one and a half day till now in Chiang Rai. I'm already full of experiences, I enjoyed a drink on the 61st floor of the tower (in Vertigo), I saw the incredible Grand Palace, the Buddha Buddha Temple, Pussy Ping Pong (I'll analyze what it is, and it's not just what's heard, ), sunset from the Golden Mountain, the Blue Temple in Chiang Rai and many more. Apart from the descriptions, I gave some tips as to what to do with entering Thailand in terms of visas, how to save a lot of money when traveling from exchange rates, and which area looks ideal for a traveller.
