Funnily enough, many travellers to Pai will tell you that it is a fabulous Thai island getaway – without being an island or having any beaches! Pai is a picturesque village nestled in the mountains and surrounded by serene rivers, which creates an amazing relaxed atmosphere very similar to that found in southern Thailand. Though small, Pai’s downtown area has one of the coolest markets in the Land of Smiles with amazing and unique local handicrafts and some of the most interesting human beings you will ever meet. The nightlife in Pai is great, and varies from very small (three stool) bars all the way to bigger and exciting nightclubs. Most notably is the surrounding area of the town, which is best explored by motorbike and full of surprises in every direction. Cafes with gorgeous mountain views, fishing ponds, waterfalls – you name it, Pai has it! It’s a great place to pack your days full of adventure or just sit back and dip your toes in the river. Everyone loves a piece of Pai!
