Welcome to Pak Thong Chai

Because Pak Thong Chai is a fairly large town, it's not nearly as fun to visit as other Isan silk centres such as Chonnabot or Ban Tha Sawang, but you can watch weavers working at Matchada, a shop at the city's southern end.

There are highway signs directing you to a Silk Cultural Center (next to the OTOP shop at the north end of town), but it's been closed for years. It's always rumoured to be reopening, but nothing is certain.
