Pai and it’s district has a wealth of places to visit and experience, it fast became one of my favourite places up in the North of Thailand whilst I was driving round the Mae hon son loop.
From the spectacular viewpoints and the stunningly refreshing waterfalls, to the beautiful forests and the Historical Memorial bridge, and some…. you will never see everything, which is why Pai is firmly on my “go back to” place.
Yun Lai Viewpoint;the Yun Lai Viewpoint situated in the Yunnan Chinese village about 4.5 kilometers from central Pai.
Pai Memorial Bridge is establish in World War II ( 1942 ) when Japan is powerful in Thailand. Japan solider use Pai for is transportation route from Chiang Mai to Burma. This bridge is the route for transport the forces and weapon to Burma like River Kwai in Kanchanaburi province. Then World War II Memorial Bridge become the building be left over after the war.
Huai Nam Dang Viewpoint at Doi Kiew Lom to overlook a stunning scene when the peak of Doi Chiang Dao emerges from the sea of fog in the morning hours.
Mae Sa Waterfall Arguably one of the most photogenic waterfalls around Chiang Mai. This multi-tier waterfall consists of 10 levels that you can even climb up carefully. Alternatively, you can take a narrow and slightly demanding trail next to the waterfall that leads up to the top. Each level is different in size but just shallow enough to stay inside. It’s a popular weekend spots for locals and expats, therefore come in the morning and during the week to avoid the hordes of visitors.
The Tha Pai Hot Spring is located in the area of Huai Nam Dang National Park in Pai. It has an average temperature of 80C. Steam from the spring permeates the site in the morning, creating fascinating sights.
