A day in Phayao

Kwan Phayao in North Thailand

In 2018 we made trip to Phayao, it is one of my favorite small towns 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 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. The house was build in 1922 and bears the name "Suthaphat House".

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
