When someone mentions Thailand the places that come to our mind are always Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui and the likes but this part of Northern Thailand that I explored is like a paradise. It is hardly thought of while planning a trip to Thailand.
I spent the last week in this little slice of Pai paradise in Thailand. Nestled in the mountains and covered with hidden sticky waterfalls, Pai is a tiny town which is a dream destination for most of us who are seeking for something off the beaten path. It is a place for both kinds of people, who want a lazy and chilled out vacation or an adventurous one. It is also safe for solo women travellers.
The cute and cozy town is called ‘The Pie Hole’ as people fall into the lifestyle and never want to leave. I can assure you its true when they say that. I had zilch will to leave, one day in Pai is just not enough.
The town is so relaxed and hippie with the constant peaceful vibe and chill atmosphere. It is beautiful, clean and , you can see down the walking street of the centre of the town. Here are some things you will never forget about your visit to Pai :
The Walking Street (Pai Night Market) – The stalls at the night market of Pai is different from most night markets all. The best thing about the market is that the price is lower than other parts of Thailand. Do not hesitate from trying everything. The most interesting thing that I tried here was the Sticky Rice Pancake and Home made ice cream cones. Along with the yummy food stalls, you will come across small shops selling cute dresses, traditional dresses and the Hill Tribe costumes. Look around for things which are cheaper here than the rest of Thailand.
