Northern Thailand Travel Guide


A market town in a narrow valley, Phrae is well off the beaten path. It's a useful stopover on the 230-km (143-mile) journey from Lampang to Nan, but has little to offer the visitor apart from ruined city walls, some attractive and historic temples, and sturdy teak buildings that attest to its former importance as a center of the logging industry.
