Roasted duck is a popular dish in many cuisines around the world. It's known for its flavorful and tender meat, crispy skin, and rich, savory taste. Here's a basic recipe for roasting a duck:
Ingredients:1 whole duck (about 4-5 pounds)
Optional: herbs and spices like thyme, rosemary, garlic, etc.
Preheat the Oven:Preheat your oven to around 350°F (175°C).
Prepare the Duck:Remove any giblets from the duck's cavity and discard them (or use them for another recipe).
Rinse the duck inside and out with cold water and pat it dry with paper towels.
Season the Duck:Rub the duck inside and out with salt, pepper, and any other desired herbs and spices. You can also use a marinade for added flavor.
Prick the Skin:Use a sharp knife to prick the skin of the duck all over. This helps the fat to render out during roasting and results in a crispy skin.
Truss the Duck (Optional):Trussing involves tying the duck with kitchen twine to help it cook evenly. This step is optional but can result in a more even roast.
Roast the Duck:Place the duck on a rack in a roasting pan, breast-side up. If you don't have a rack, you can also place the duck directly in the pan.
Roast in the preheated oven for about 2-2.5 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) for the breast meat and 175°F (80°C) for the thigh meat.
Check for Doneness:Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. The skin should be golden and crisp.
Rest the Duck:Allow the duck to rest for about 10-15 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute and results in a juicier meat.
Carve and Serve:Carve the duck into serving portions and serve with your choice of sides.
Remember, cooking times can vary based on the size of the duck and individual ovens, so it's always a good idea to use a meat thermometer to ensure it's cooked to a safe temperature. Enjoy your delicious roasted duck!

Vast land in the mountains with a dam surrounding making it a good spot for all views! Flowers have withered a little though...a good time would have been Nov i was told. But its still good bcos not so crowded n could take great photos of every angle with no crowd. Nice place

Not too far from the city. The area are filled with nice settings. It's quite nice to walk around and enjoy an evening. The terrace with 360° high view is the highlight. There would be more activity on weekend. Going to be great if there were filled with more flowers.

Nice national park in Lampang Province. This is the place Where I took my pre-wedding photos and videos. Very nice scenery. We are slightly above the flat terrain which enable us to view the surrounding widely. You are able to see mountains and flat lands just right in front of your eyes. The park also have a viewing tower. There's also a huge pond which have lots of water lily. The park is also nicely decorated for festival. My dreams are blossoming as easily as these flowers!

During this time, the lotus flower is still blooming. It's beautiful. 😊 You can drive along the way that they have posted the sign. There is a parking spot 🚗 periodically. They made a sign for you to take photos. Check in at many points. Free of charge On the way back, we stop at Chaloem Phra Kiat Park. You can walk again. 😊We met during the event. In the evening, they turned on the lights 🎇 pretty well (Now the event is sold out 😅) but I saw that the area is still open for tourists to visit every day until January 14, 2023.
🌼 Chaloem Phrakiat Park Open for sightseeing from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
🌼 Thung Bua Tong time 07.30-18.00
🌼 EGAT Botanical Garden, Mae Moh, 08.00-18.00 hours, not except public holidays
According to this 😊

Life is like the sky Some days are so bright that we want to live with it for a long time. Some days are so sad that we want to get through it quickly.

Thung Bua Tong is located on the eastern side of the mining pit, covering an area of ​​more than 500 rai. to make a high artificial mountain 200 meters from the normal ground level, the lotus flower will bloom brightly yellow, eye-catching during October - November of every year and is a viewpoint that is at the same height as the chimney of Mae Moh Power Plant. EGAT Mae Moh and Mae Moh District as well

The gate is open for visitors from 08:30 - 18:00. If you go during the rainy season, the weather is very good. But if you want to see the lotus flowers blooming yellow, you must go from mid-October until the end of November, the flowers will begin to sprinkle.

You can drive in right away, there will be a sign telling you all the time. Both in the Tong Bua Tong garden and the entrance, there are many lotus flowers coming out. It is recommended to come either in the morning or in the evening because it will be a bit hot. My soul speaks in flowers.

November is the season when the lotus flowers bloom. Here every year an event is decorated with beautiful night lights. The power plant is very wide, but there are signs throughout. Come here, you won't be disappointed, beautiful and the atmosphere is very good. “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” – Audrey Hepburn
