Safety and Precautions
Ampawa can become really crowded, especially during holidays. Keep a careful eye on your possessions. Don Hoi Lod doesn't get too many Western travelers, so you may have problems communicating. Make sure you keep an eye on the time if you are taking a songthaew from Don Hoi Lod to Ampawa. The drivers stop taking passengers at 5 pm.
