    Small but fun. Scenery getting there was beautiful - lots of farming countryside. Loads of school kids there for school trips and Thai families setting up picnics on the grass. The onsen eggs were not for us but it was still fun buying the eggs and the special baskets and cooking the eggs in the hot springs. We were the only foreign tourists there. Did not make it to the waterfall - and it was too hot to consider the bathing portion of the hot springs. Would def. recommend.

    A lovely place to visit. The tour, at set times is given in English which was very interesting and fun.
    You are given an indepth history of the origins of the pottery production here.
    Then you can observe the many stages of the pottery creation.
    There's an excellent display of old and current examples of what is produced and exported all over the world.
    At the end of the tour there is an opportunity to buy some pottery in an excellent shop with small cafe serving delicious ice cream.
    Definitely worth a visit.

    The temple was crowded with both tourists and locals. There were many horse carriages serving tourists in front of the temple. The entrance of this grand temple is a huge Lanna style gorgeous arch door. Many things to see inside the temple including a holy pagoda of the Ox year (zodiac) that contains Buddha's relics. We walked 3 times in clockwise direction around the pagoda to pay respect. Our guide pointed us the position of 2 bullet marks on the brass cage that surround the base of the pagoda which freed the city from Burmese general (and killed him) about 200 years ago (ask your guide for more details). Then, he led us to a little house. Inside the house (only men are allowed to enter), there is an upside down image of the pagoda on a fabric screen. This is a real-life example of an optical phenomenon that demonstrates rectilinear propagation of light passing through a small hole (same as pinhole camera). He also took us to the temple's museum. Last but certainly not least, we worshipped "Phra Kaew Don Tao", Lampang's famous emerald Buddha carved from a greenish jade found in a watermelon (according to legend of Miss Suchada). Finally, I bought a model of the pagoda, since my zodiac is ox.

    This site actually has 2 temples. The popular one is "Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao" which was once resided the famous emerald Buddha for 32 years. Our guide told us about a colorful folktale about Miss Suchada and the emerald inside a watermelon which was later craved into Buddha statue. Highlights of this temple included the beautiful Burmese-European pavilion and the golden pagoda containing Buddha relic (hair). Ones may take a stroll around the place to see the other architectures and visit the museum that contains many antique collections. The other temple is the tranquil Lanna style "Wat Suchadaram".

    We heard of the temple when listened to Lampang's history at Museum Lampang, so we asked our guide to take us there. Our guide told us that the temple received "award of merit" from UNESCO in 2008. The 1350 years old (approximately) temple has witnessed and took part in many significant events of the city and the kingdom such as founding of an ancient city "Khelang Nakhon" (about 1350 years ago), united with Lanna kingdom and became the center of the city (about 700 years ago), occupied by Burma (about 450 years ago), reconquest of the city from Burma (about 200 years ago), and was the place where the first city pillar of Lampang established (about 160 years ago).

    At the time when we visited, the temple was serene (due to Covid pandemic?) and well-maintained. Highlight of the temple is "The hall of thousand Buddhas", an old open-air gorgeous wooden hall in a combination of Lanna-Burmese-Chinese architecture style. Inside the hall, there are 4 sitting Buddha statues face all 4 directions and 1080 votive tablets decorated around its inner wall (that's why it got the name).

    I strolled on sunday evening of february, when the climate changed a lot with unusual heat at this moment. This temple was claimed to be biggest golden teak monastery in town. Built to be Indra God 's palace with burmese arts both interiors and outsides. There were Buddha statue in myanmar style. It's quite peaceful , door opens ftom 8:00am to 18:00 .

    A bit difficult to find (well, the Tourist Office staff were very helpful), very interesting history, the son of the KING AND I teacher (yes, I know...). An English gentleman, born in Lynton WA (no, NOT in Washington State but in Western Australia, haha)!

    It is a lovely, large park, with a lake. The park is clean with plenty of large, shade trees. Green and welcoming, with a good playground for the kids. Dogs are also welcome!
