Back in the early days of New Mandala I made a post about the “Indochina Intersection” on the highway outside Pitsanulok. In response to a recent effort to revive interest in that post, John Roberts from the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation has sent through some wonderful pictures of the ASEAN road distance figures given at the “Five Chiangs Intersection” in Lampang.
The details on the huge milestone are:
Chiang Mai 92
Chiang Rai 225
Chiang Tung 458
Chiang Tong (Luang Prabang) 554
Chiang Rung (Sipsongpanna) 684
Indochina Intersection 252
Five Chiangs Intersection
The gateway to Lanna
Thanks to John for sending through these great pictures. If New Mandala readers come across similar road signs anywhere else in the region please feel encouraged to send me the pictures.
