Sleepy timber town
Lampang is a sleepy river town with stunning old timber houses built by Burmese and Chinese traders. These grand mansions show the wealth of times long gone. Neglected for years, now lovingly restored and turned into hostels, cafés and art centres by passionate locals and creative entrepreneurs who are discovering Lampang’s many charms.
On weekends the town comes alive with visitors who flock here for the Kad Kong Ta street market with local produce and handicrafts celebrating the city’s unique heritage.
