Phayao



 


What :

The town of Phayao rests beside the silver waters of Kwan Phayao Lake in Northern Thailand. Hemmed in by mountains and river valleys, Phayao is a quiet get away for luxury tours of Thailand.

The downtown area is a few charming blocks of tree-line streets, wooden houses, and temples that give the lake town a rustic and peaceful feeling. At the center of Kwan Phayao Lake, the sunken ruins of Wat Tiloke Aram are a popular excursion on tours in Northern Thailand.

Back on the shore the large Wat Sri Khom Kham houses a nearly 60 feet-high statue of Buddha, and the grounds contain a statue garden depicting scenes from Buddhist Hell. Next door, Phayao cultural Exhibition Hall is packed with artifacts and local historical information.


When :

The heaviest rains come through the region between June and October. March through May is the season with the highest temperatures, and the best weather to enjoy Phayao falls between November and January.


Where :

Phayao Town is the Norther Thailand’s Phayao Province’s capital. The town can be reached by private vehicle departing from Chiang Rai in as little as 3 hours.


Who :

An idyllic and unspoiled destination, Phayao has rustic feel and authentic Thai culture hard to find in its more developed neighbors.


Appropriate Attire :

Western wear is fine in town, but clothing should cover shoulders to knees when visiting any of the temples in the area.

Jason & Cindy Burgess - October 2013

My family and I took a two week long tour of Thailand with Easy Tours of Thailand and the trip truly could not have been any better.

Our guide was very personable, knowledgeable, and her English was excellent. In addition to offering a unique and local perspective throughout the tour, we were completely at ease with her and felt that she truly wanted to make our experience the best it could possibly be.

The private driver and vehicle that was set up for us was also excellent. I knew prior to our trip that it would probably be best to reserve this type of service during our travels, but I had no idea how invaluable this ended up being for us. He maneuvered through crowded streets and unexpected roadblocks with ease, and knew which areas to avoid driving through and efficient alternative routes. To top it off, the vehicle was always very clean, air conditioned, and there were cold drinks waiting for us after visiting a site.

The tour itself was completely tailored to what we wanted to see and what our interests are with assistance from their U.S Sales Office prior to arriving in Bangkok. They provided a day by day itinerary for us which was great, but the best part was having the freedom to change things as needed, or make unexpected stops to explore, as the tour unfolded.

I would definitely use this company again if we go back to Thailand.
