Highlights in Lampang

Lampang has 3-4 major attractions, but 1 of them Wat Chaleom Phra Kiat is my favorite temple. The temple has many names and these stupas building over such an incredible terrain.


Highlights in Phayao

Phayao is a quiet province in agricultural society. There is a large freshwater lake and mountains surrounding. There are many unknown places to explore. I though this one of the provinces in Thailand that walkable city.

Highlights in Chiang Rai

Of course, Chiang Rai has as many tourist attractions as Chiang Mai. Although each location has a distancing and complicate to arranging in a day. I like what a different from others. The exciting boat ride along Kok River to the Karen village and Mekong River crosses to Laos which tourists less to know. We had option to extend a long route.

Highlights in Chiang Dao

We will go to a hidden village nearby Chiang Dao foothill and escape to the jungle. That is the best area to trekking. We’ll cross the creek to swimming at waterfall, have a picnic lunch and relax there.
