Pai, northern Thailand

Pai in the sky Three hours west of Chiang Mai, the Thai hill town of Pai offers a delightful retreat for travellers of all ages. Not too big and not too small, sleepy yet surprisingly sophisticated, surrounded by densely forested hills, Pai is too tempting to let the backpacker brigade have it all to themselves. Rent a riverside cabin for a few dollars a night, dine out on khao sai, Lanna-style noodles with curry then bar-hop until the lights go out. Explore the back roads and ethnic minority villages by motorcycle.
