Memories and Learning of a New Culture

Every weekend, we really take our days off. We visited all the nearby tourist attractions that we could visit in Lampang. The most famous tourist attraction here is the market. Lampang has several markets which are usually opened on weekends with their own personalities. We also visited historical sites along with temples and wooden houses in a residential area.

On Sunday, on the Wiang Nua road, we visited Kad Mua Kua Gnai. Kad Mua Kua Gnai operates before 07.00 am. This market is different from other markets in the city, because it sells mainly food and desserts. Early in the morning, locals will come here to shop and give alms to the passing monks.

On Friday on Wangnua Street in the old city, we visited Kad Mua Kua Lang: the market began operating at 16:00 – 21:00. Here we can find sellers that sell locally made products including toys, clothes, and of course food.

On weekends (Saturday and Sunday) there is a street market on Talad Kao Street called Kad Kong Ta. This market operates from 17:00 – 21:00.

Not to forget we visited the temple in Lampang, namely Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, a Lanna-style temple located on a small hill about 20 km from the city.

And of course don’t forget about elephants! It’s no secret that elephants are very popular with tourists visiting Thailand, and here we are! At the Thailand Elephant Conservation Center, here we learn about this giant with thick and soft skin, watching demonstrations, and even if we wanted to be able to ride an elephant, unfortunately I did not dare.

Don’t ask how our culinary tours are explored, from the first to the end we were served authentic Thai cuisine. We tasted authentic Northern Thai food at the well-known restaurant, Aroy One Baht, for cheap and delicious Thai food.
