Photo of the Week: Pai, Thailand!
If you’ve checked out our Thailand Travel Guide, you’ll see more mention of the south of country where the beaches reign supreme, but the north of the country offers some amazing mountains, pine forest, and a much cooler climate which is a nice break from the heat and humidity.
This photo comes from Pai, Thailand, in the Mae Hong Son Province, northwest of the popular city of Chiang Mai. It has become a backpacker and hippie haven for its laid back vibe, slow pace of life and stunning landscapes. A few popular sites people visit near Pai are the Japanese WWII Bridge, hot springs and Pai Canyon which is pictured above. You can rent a motorcycle or scooter in town for a few bucks and explore the region for a few days.
There are wealth of guest houses in and around Pai, so finding a place to stay should never be an in issue!
