Traveling in Lampang province in North Thailand
Last year I did make a posting about counting all the provinces I had been in Thailand. And I saw I have been to (stayed in) 48 provinces out of the 76. So in the coming months I will travel via my postings from the most southern province I have been to the most northern province, with some photos and information about each province. This is part 28 of the 47 (out of the 77) provinces where I have at least stayed overnight once. Lampang province is just before Chiang Mai province and is located in between the mountains of North Thailand. Lampang town along the Wang River is a small provincial city that is home to many old Lanna style temples, small streets with old wooden houses. A bit like Chiang Mai must have been 30 years ago. For Thai people Lampang is famous for its ceramic factories. I think that 70% of the ceramic sold in Thailand comes from Lampang. Lampang town is one of my favourite places in North Thailand and it was around 1995 that I came for the first time in Lampang. I love the beautiful gingerbread house, old teak wooden houses and the small streets. And upcountry Lampang province offers beautiful mountains, lakes and small villages. Following are some photos I made in the passing years coming to Lampang.
