Phayao overview

Phayao Travel Guide
Phayao is a sleepy little town in Northern Thailandís Northern River Valley. If youíre looking for Disney Land and Las Vegas then this probably isnít the place for you, as the peaceful province has few attractions and modern facilities. Like many places of such little notoriety, however, Phayao does have a charm of all its own. Surrounded by lush valleys and rolling mountains, the city dates back almost 1,000 years and was part of the ancient Lanna kingdom of the 14th century. Thanks to this, there are a few interesting religious and historical sites scattered around Phayao, but if you do crave some rowdy, Thai-style nightlife during your stay, be aware that the bright lights of Bangkok is almost 700kms away.
