to feed elephants. Today it is the most famous and
most important temple in Pai, where important Thai
ceremonies are frequently held. The big Shan pagoda
and spirit house protect the town from negative
Wat Prathat Mae Yen:
The Temple on the Hill…
Spectacular View over the Pai valley…Beautiful
Place to Watch the Sunset…
Wat Nam Hoo: A Sacred Chiang Saen Buddah
image ‘Lunag Po Une Muang’ is situated here. It is
believed that the king ‘Naraesuan Maharaat” built this
temple in order to give good kharma for his older sister
‘Pra Peenangsuphan Ganlayaa.’ Her monument is at the

Mae Yen Waterfall: about 7 kilometers from Pai. A
three-tiered waterfall, one of the most beautiful in the
district. It’s a long hike, so don’t forget to take plenty of
water & leave early … wouldn’t want to get stuck in the
Mor Paeng Waterfall:
8 km from Pai, one of Pai’s
main attractions. There’s a jungle pool, so take your
swimming gear if you want to go for a dip, the rocks are
smooth, just find a small section & slide on down like the
Kong Lan on the highway 1095 before
the World War II Memorial Bridge. Best to visit early
mornings or for sunset, as in the afternoon the area can
get very hot.
Pem Bok Waterfall:
turn off near Pai Canyon. Nice
secluded waterfall with 20m high cliffs surrounding it,
making this a very cool place to escape the heat.
World War 2 Memorial Bridge:
attraction built by the Japanese as a transportation
route between Chiang Mai and Burma. Located about
9km south of Pai along Highway 1095.
