A day in Phayao

Phayao is my favorite small city in North Thailand. Along the shore of the lake are many restaurants and some hotels. Life in town is slow and comfortable. Just relax and enjoy Thai upcountry city life. The first time I was in Phayao was about 20 years ago and along the lake side was standing a gracious old mansion ** of the old days of Phayao. It was empty and not in use. In the years passing by you could see the building being destroyed by time and weather. It did always hurt me to see that and I was always wondering why? Luckily now finally rescue has come and the grand old lady of Phayao has been given a new roof. And restoration is fully on the way.

** I did just read that this house is supposed to be build in 1922 and bears the name "Suthaphat House".
