Kengtung Moving Day...

Moving Day...

Probably best to get reservations prior to arriving in Kengtung during the dry season (winter). The hotels/guest houses here are small and the number limited.

As you can plainly see though, I didn't do that. Just showed up hoping for the best. And so, during our week here, we had to jump around a bit. Here on a bike moving all my worldly possessions from one place to another...

Princess Hotel, complete with generator... - Kengtung

Princess Hotel, complete with generator...

Princess Hotel

Upon checking into the Princess Hotel in Kengtung, I was given a room key and a flashlight...

Flashlight ??? for what I wondered.... This mystery was soon solved as upon utilizing the key to access the room, I found the room to be dark and unresponsive to all light switches...

So anyway, I thought, probably just doing some maintenance on the power system or something.... Opening the window for some light, I noticed a large generator around on the side of the hotel...

Well, as it turned out, city power was only up and running for about an hour each day.... and that generator soon became my best friend.... The hotel would turn it on in the morning for a couple hours so you could have a hot shower, and also a couple hours at night....

I'm not saying this is the only place to stay in town, but just that your comfort level in Kengtung will be enhance if alternate sources of electrical light and power are available at your accomodation....

BTW: The owner staff here are quite friendly and glad to assist with arranging tours, hiring vehicles, or pretty much anything that they can help with...
