A superb mountain town to explore, relax and soak up the 'vibes'

Pai is one of the most famous mountain towns in Thailand and has been on travellers checklists for many, many years, and look closely enough and you’ll still come across the odd person who visited in the 70’s and 80’s and never left!

Set in a broad valley with mountains all around, Pai delivers a great combination of spectacular views – mountains plus rice fields plus forests – along with plenty of activities in the surrounding area, a great night market and street food and also lots of laid back bars to sit back and watch the world go by.

The Tuk Tuk Club’s 11 Day Adventure heads through Pai and we spend two nights here giving you the time to either rest up and relax by the pool, enjoy a traditional massage or head out and explore the markets and the town. Or a combination of all of the above!

We’ve put together a few notes to highlight some of the very best of Pai to help you prepare for your adventure or, even if you don’t travel with The Tuk Tuk Club, do make sure you spend some time in this lovely, laid back part of the world.

Travelling between chiang mai and pai

Probably the most common question asked by travellers heading to Pai - what's the best way to get there. The good news is that if you're on an 11 Day Tuk Tuk Adventure you head not only along the most spectacular route between the two towns but of course you also do it by Tuk Tuk (there is no better way to travel). But just in case you're not joining us for an 11 Day Adventure here are the best ways to travel to Pai.....


Of course the best way to experience Pai is on a Tuk Tuk Club Adventure - we stay here for 2 nights on our 11 Day Adventure - but just in case you're not joining us (why wouldn't you?) here are a few of our favourite places to stay in Pai.
