Tourism in Lampang
Lampang doesn’t attract large numbers of tourists in the same way as Ayutthaya or Chiang Mai, it does however have interesting attractions of a steady stream of visitors, particularly Thai people coming at the weekend. The facilities for foreign and domestic holiday makers are farily good with a wide range of hotels and restaurants located in the city centre on, or near, the Tip Chang and Talad Gao Roads. Lampang also offers a unique local transport service with horse drawn carriages available to rent for tours of the city. Horse and carriage was at one time the only form of public transport in Lampang and the tradition has been kept going largely for the benefit of tourists.
Wat Phra That Lampang Luang
The main attraction in Lampang, Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, is located 15 km from Lampang city centre. Wat Phra That Lampang Luang was established in the 13th Century. Wat Phra That Lampang Luang is a rare example of a fortified temple built on a small hill. Wat Phra That Lampang Luang is also notable for its well preserved Lanna style buildings.
Lampang Old Quarter
Also popular with visitors is the old quarter of the City near the Wang River around the Talad Gao Road. Many of the building here are old and made of wood. Up until the middle of the 20th Century many of Thailand’s city centres featured similar wooden buildings. A series of fires in middle of the Twentieth Century destroyed many of the original wood buildings in large Thai towns, for example as in Phitsanulok, erasing this type of architecture. In terms of the look of the old part of the city centre a visit to Lampang offers an insight into Thailand’s urban history. The city makes good commercial use of the nostalgia for Thailand’s past by holding an evening street market on the Talad Gao Road every weekend with traditional Thai products sold as souvenirs from street stalls.
Northern Side of the Wang River
On the northern side of the Wang River is a series of old temples, most notable of which is Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao, and some more notable old wooden buildings. The most famous of these stand alone private residences is Baan Sao Nak. Baan Sao Nak was completed in 1895 and the main structure sits on 116 thick teak wood posts. Baan Sao Nak is open to visitors daily from 10:00 to 17:00.
