Every traveler that comes to Pai ends up extending their visit. People come here and decide they never want to leave.
An Australian we met back in Laos decided she was going to move to Pai for 6 months starting in 2019.
It’s easy to see why.
It’s surrounded by jungle-covered mountains. There are waterfalls and swimming holes. The locals are relaxed and friendly. Nobody honks or shouts.
The food is fresh. There are vegan restaurants on every corner. The Pad Thai and the Kao Soi are incredible.
We intended to come for 3 nights. We stayed for 5.
Goodbye, Phai-Mae Hong Son.
