If you’re looking to kick back, relax and get away for however long, than Pai is the place for you. Small town mountain vibes make it easy to slow down and take it all in. Chase waterfalls and explore canyons during the day and relax or party all night.
“First-time visitors to Pai (ปาย) might wonder if they’ve strayed into a northern version of a Thai island getaway, only without the beaches. Guesthouses appear to outnumber private residences in the ‘downtown’ area, a travel agency or restaurant is never more than a few steps away and the nights buzz with the sound of music and partying.” – Lonely Planet
Be prepared for a bumpy ride with some twisty turny roads, especially if you take a minivan. Those prone to motion sickness might request to sit up front. I would very seriously advise not to be hungover for this journey.
