Things to Do in Pai, Thailand

Things to Do in Pai, Thailand, Pai, Thailand (B)

Pai is a small hippy town about a 3 hour drive from Chiang Mai in the mountains of Northern Thailand. It is known to be one of those places that you come for a night and end up staying a week due to slow pace of life. We initially booked 3 nights but with a longish list of things to do in Pai, we decided to extend our stay…then extended again…and again…until 2 weeks flew by.

There’s quite a few things to do in Pai and all the points of interest are pretty close to each other so technically you could see everything within a couple of days if you wanted to, but most people come here to relax. We spread out all our activities (most of which are free) and spent the majority of our time just hanging out.

As mentioned above, unlike a big city like Chiang Mai, most of the things to do in Pai are close together though still 10-20mins drive apart so you will need transport to get around. There are tours you can do that take you sightseeing for the day for around 500baht ($20AUD), however we highly recommend renting a scooter and having your own freedom. Most rental places hire out old scooters with small engines for as little as 100baht ($4AUD) for 24 hours to drive around the town centre only, or a good price to pay for a scooter that’s powerful enough to get you around the countryside and even further into the mountains is around 140baht ($6AUD) per day. ......
