Trip to Lampang for the Countdown Festival

The destination for my new years countdown event this year was in Lampang in Northern Thailand. The Tourism Authority of Thailand had organized Countdown events in five regions of Thailand (see here). These were in Lampang (North), Sakon Nakhon (Northeast), Rayong (East), Phuket (South) and Kanchanaburi (West). I wasn’t in Lampang for very long, but it was enough to see the highlights. It is certainly a city that I would like to return to and explore at a more leisurely pace. And a good way to do that is on a pony and cart tour. The following photos were tweeted live during my trip.

    With the great riverfront pathways – its a shame that it is so difficult to rent a bicycle in Lampang (based on my 4 day visit in Oct 2017).
    It is a charming enough city and very bicycle friendly – Needs more bicycle rental outlets.
