About Train Travel to Lampang
Lampang, located approximately 100 km to the south of Chiang Mai, is the thrid largest city in the Nothern Region of Thailand. Unlike Chiang Mai to the North, Lampang has only fairly recently become popular as a tourist destination, and generally the majority of the visitors are Thai tourists.
Relatively few foreign visitors come to Lampang and there are only a handful of hotels and restaurants on or near the Tip Chang Road which are focussed on catered to foreign visitors. The lack of development in the city and the low level of tourism adds to the charm of Lampang, and what is on offer in Lampang is generally very good value for money.
Lampang is well known in Thailand for several things. Traditionally local transport in Lampang was by horse and cart, and horse and cart tours are still available although they tend to now only be used by tourists. Lampang is also known for its old buildings.
The Talad Gao Road on the south side of the Wang River in particular features many old wooden buildings of type which used to be found all other Thailand. These types of buildings have largely disappeared from Thailand in favour of concrete buildings, particularly because the wooden buildings have decayed, and partly because many old fashioned wood built town centres were destroyed by accidental fires during the 20th Century, as happened in Phitsanulok. A tour around Lampang is in many ways a trip back in time to see what Thai town looked like 100 or more years ago.
Particular points in interest in Lampang include:
- Baan Sao Nak: A teak house supported by 116 thick teak pillars that was built in 1895 as a private residence.
- Wat Pratu Ton Phueng: A beautiful Lanna style temple.
- Wat Pratu Pong: Another ornate Lanna style temple established in the 16th Century most notably featuring a prayer hall with remarkable wooden carvings.
- Chinese Market on the Talad Gao Road: This weekend night market is held on the street in front of old wooden building. Market stall holders in this market primarily sell a variety of old fashioned Thai products.
- Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao: This temple is the largest in Lampang city centre and famous because the Emerald Buddha Statue was kept there from 1434 and 1468.
