Welcome to Pai

Despite all this, the town’s popularity has yet to negatively impact its nearly picture-perfect setting in a mountain valley. There’s heaps of quiet accommodation outside the main drag, a host of natural, lazy activities to keep visitors entertained and a vibrant art scene. And the town’s Shan roots can still be seen in its temples, quiet backstreets and fun afternoon market.
