Day 4 of Northern Thai Trip (part 2): Khum Khantoke, Chiang Mai
Pai is one of my favourite city in northern region. It is a classic mountain city with cool weather and so many cute landmarks everywhere in this town. Not so crowded, but again if you don't come here around school holiday or new years holiday as this place is one of the top holiday destination on winter season. There are two ways to get here. First, the common way, by road, where it will take about 4 or 5 hours on the extreme curvy roads. Most of the people are thrown out after arriving at the destination. And the easier way would be catching a tiny plane (maximum is 12 passenger at a time)from Chiang Mai to Pai that takes only 20 minutes. Very convenient and time saver however it is of course more costly.
This time we stayed at Medio De Pai boutique hotel, which is situated in a great location, just less than five minutes walk to the walking street. More like a resort to me, with only two story building and swimming pool in the middle.
Again, it was a crowded night, just before the new year's eve. But luckily we went there early, just pass 5 in the evening and around 7pm we finish browsing and bought food. Ready to come back to our cozy hotel, it is when the walking street are starting to pack with people. Yet again, this pai walking street is one of the best walking street in Thailand. Range of variety food and drinks also souvenirs and live music (some days).
