Don't Miss Any of These Interesting Places in Pai, Thailand

By Greg Rodgers
Asia Travel Expert,
You’ll find lots of interesting places in Pai, Thailand’s pleasant little riverside town just four hours north of Chiang Mai. Once very chilled out, Pai is now unsurprisingly a hit with visitors from all over the world and has secured its standing on the Banana Pancake Trail. And while most travelers choose to enjoy the waterfalls, hot springs, and green scenery in the area, they miss out on some special spots closer to town.

Note: To visit some of these places, you’ll need a bicycle or scooter. Grab a motorbike rental (less than US $4 per day) along with one of the many free maps and start exploring! Tip: The police regularly fine tourists without helmets -- wear one!

Wat Prathat Mae Yen[post_ads_2]

Certainly the best place to see the sunset on a clear day, Pai’s Temple on the Hill is a short drive just out of town to the southeast. Although the large seated Buddha is still under construction, a few people still gather each evening to watch the show.

The Afternoon Market

The sprawling, open-air market located just to the west of town at the end of Raddamrong Road has all the fruit and veggies you could ever eat. The seasonal fruits are way cheaper than you’ll find for sale from shops and restaurants.

Pai Circus School[post_ads_2]

Ever wanted to learn how to juggle or try walking on a slackline? The Pai Circus School just outside of town has a trampoline, bungalows, swimming pool, great views, and opportunities to learn tricks from other travelers. Who knows, you may be doing the next fire show.

Bueng Pai Farm

If you’ve got any desire to fish while on your trip, this is the place to do so. You can also opt to stay in one of the relaxed bungalows at Bueng Pai Farm for even better early morning or evening fishing. The lake is full of exotic species; you can purchase a bucket of bait for an enjoyable afternoon.

Unique Bars, Cafes, and Restaurants

These favorite places are a throwback from the ‘hippie’ backpacker vibe of Pai’s former years. Delicious, healthy food can be enjoyed over conversations with interesting people in peaceful settings. You'll also find plenty of interesting bars for socializing in Pai.

Ohm Garden Cafe[post_ads_2]

Tucked away on a side street in town and a little tricky to find, the Ohm Garden Cafe has a positive atmosphere. The handwritten, blackboard menu is full of delicious Thai/Western fusion food and healthy drinks. You’ll have to get there early: business hours are only from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Art in Chai

The vibe in Art of Chai is as pleasant as the owners. You’ll find great chai, coffee, kombucha, and healthy snacks along with a unique atmosphere for lounging and reading. Travelers who have visited India will really appreciate the d├ęcor and products for sale.

Joy Cafe[post_ads_2]

The owner, Joy, is the person to ask for finding natural products around Pai. Excellent Western and Thai food are served in a great setting. If MSG is a problem for you, Joy’s is guaranteed to please. You’ll probably encounter some local martial artists from the nearby Muay Thai gym.

Good Life

Located just around the corner from the Walking Street, Good Life serves up healthy food and medicinal teas. You’ll find a sporadic library and even workshops for meditation and making kombucha.
