The cold weather and morning mist aren’t Pai’s only charm. This photogenic town of Pai inspires people all the time regardless of weather condition. Each season in Pai is unique in itself. Its scenery is perfect for pictures all year round. Whether you are camera-crazed tourists or those who are only interested in drinking in the views over a nice cup of coffee, you will love Pai even when it rains!
Although you may not be too keen on producing nice shots, you can enjoy the scenery, beautiful lighting and its effects on various objects at different locations. Apart from the bird-eye-view at dusk from Phra That Mae Yen temple on the hill top, the Yunnan Chinese village known as Baan Santichon, on the hillside overlooking Pai village, offers a superb site for a photo shoot. The place offers quite an interesting opportunity to play with light on mud and concrete buildings. Pictures taken at this site give out totally different impressions and feelings. For those enjoying the monotone, afternoon shots with the fading light work wonder.
Those who enjoy the greenery of the countryside, a view from Coffee In Love over a cup of coffee and delicious desserts can be quite rewarding. To get around to various places for good shots at different times of the day a bike or a motorcycle is recommended, as they give you more flexibility and time to pick out the best angle. If you are staying at quite a well-established hotel in town, you might find a bike or a motorbike renting service available at the boutique hotel of your choice. Otherwise, just stroll through town and shop around for the best condition vehicles at the most cost-effective price. This way you can get both a perfect hide away over this coming long weekend holiday and a pretty reminder of your happy time in Pai.
