Discover the neighborhoods of Lamphun


Found in the Northern River Valley of Thailand is the provincial capital of Lamphun. The city boasts nearly 1,400 years of history, and legend says the city was formerly known as Hariphunchai. This fairly small city is an enchanting escape into the land of northern Thailand. Not too far from Chiang Mai, visitors can arrive via bus.

Lamphun can be easily traversed on foot, but transportation such as motorcycle taxis can be of use if needing to make a more distant journey. Transportation will be of great use if looking to head out to Luang Pha Waing Cave. Set 45km out of the city and accessible after a 15-minute walk, the journey pays off once you are here. Outside the natural sites, Lamphun is a laidback destination to escape it all. There are many temples to explore, including Wat Phra That Hariphunchai and Wat Phra Yuen. Cheap dining options and a relaxed atmosphere ensure a refreshing experience.

Be sure to check out the interactive map of Lamphun for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
