This winter... Lampang will not longer be a passage way : )
Let's see where we should visit this winter... cute corners of the city - the people, beautiful nature, fountains, waterfalls, viewpoints and nice spots for cool photos!
The first destination is a highlight destination! If you don't visit this place, it's like you haven't reached Lampang.
1. Chae Son National Park
It's green everywhere you look ... there is a hot spring to soak your feet in (there are also rooms for a full body soak). Or if the hot spring is too hot for you, the waterfall is nice and cool. When it is time to eat, you can boil eggs in the hot spring and enjoy it with soy sauce. Highly recommended!
National park entrance fee:
Thai visitors : Adults 40 baht / Child 20 baht
Foreign visitors : Adults 200 baht / Child 100 baht
Hot spring room rental 50 baht/person (single and group have the same price)
Towel rental 20 baht
Sarong rental 10 baht

You don't have to pay to enjoy soaking your feet in the hot spring!
The waterfall is nice and cool : )
2. Lampang's Black Bridge + Rattana Market
This bridge dates back to post WW II. It connects Nakorn Lampang Station with Boe Haew Station. It is located near Rattana market (also known as Gao Jao market) which is a morning market, so you can find breakfast here and then go to the bridge to take photos.
It is recommended to visit the market at around 6-9 AM so that you have enough time to enjoy both the market and the bridge.

There are a few street art corners scattered around the area. They are nice and hipster places to take photos.
3. Pra Tat Doi Pra Chan Temple
During the rainy season and winter season, this place is a great place to visit because you can see the beautiful sea of fog. However, you should visit in the morning around sunrise. The temple's name may not sound familiar, but its view is amazing - you can see mountains and green trees everywhere.
It is recommended to visit around 6 AM. If you visit any later than that, you may see the view, but the fog may not be there (however, it's still beautiful anyway).
Located in Tambon Pa Tan, Amphoe Mae Ta, Lampang Province.

The temple is the temple for those who are born in the year of the ox. In front, there are horse carriages for rent (to take photos only costs 10 baht).
