Lampang

— 4 nights

Sleeping Beauty

Translating as "City of the Horse Carriage," Lampang still remains relatively untouristed, which gives it an authentic, traditional feel that's hard to find in a lot of other Thai tourist hotspots.
Venture out of the city with trips to Lamphun (Wat Kukut, Wat Phra That Hariphunchai, &more), Tweechol Botanic Garden (in Doi Saket) and Mae On (San Kamphaeng Hot Springs, Mae Kampong Waterfall, &more). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, tour the pleasant surroundings at Thai Elephant Conservation Center, and take in the views from Ratsadapisek Bridge.

Plan my trip to Lampang with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Chiang Mai to Lampang is an approximately 2-hour car ride. You can also drive; or take a bus; or take a train. In October, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 26°C. On the 5th (Mon), you're off to Phrae.
