From Huai Keow there runs a windy soi ending via soi 17 near the army housing area behind the convention center. This route has many shady spots compared to the Canal Rd and places to eat and drink. The straight road heading north in the pic leads to Chiang Mai Sala Klang, but is dangerous with a very rough left hand lane. Resurfacing the lane and marking for bike priority should be undertaken without delay.
