Welcome to Lampang
Are you the type of traveller who wants to say that you were there first, before it became too cool? Well you just might have your chance in Lampang (ลำปาง). Drawn to the city's riverside charm, locals and outsiders have opened a small but growing spread of hip cafes, tasty restaurants and image-conscious hotels in recent years – in addition to the city's gorgeous antique buildings and two of the best markets in the north. Yet despite all this, Lampang sees relatively few visitors, giving it more of an undiscovered feel than some of the more touristy destinations in the north.
