What to see in Lampang

The city of Lampang hosts several Lanna style temples. The most interesting and famous temple in town is Wat Phra Kaew Don the Tao intimately linked to the history of the city. But the visit you must-do when you are in Lampang is Wat Phra That Lampang Luang, which is twenty kilometers away from Lampang. This is one of the most beautiful places of worship in Thailand. At 65 km from Lampang, there is probably my favorite place in the province, an amazing temple built on the top of a mountain.

Must-visits in Lampang

Wat Phra That Lampang Luang Lampang

Wat Phra That Lampang Luang

วัดพระธาตุลำปางหลวง
My opinion :
emblematic temple of Lampang province, it is truly the place to visit here but it is about twenty kilometers away from Lampang City.
Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao Lampang

Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao

วัดพระแก้วดอนเต้
My opinion :
This is probably the most interesting temple inside Lampang city. It was the first one housing the Emerald Buddha which is now in Bangkok now.
Wat Chalerm Phrakiat Lampang

Wat Chalerm Phrakiat

วัดเฉลิมพระเกียรติพระจอมเกล้าราชานุสรณ์
My opinion :
This temple perched on a mountain is not to be missed ! This will certainly be your most memorable visit you will do in Lampang Province. It is 1 hour drive (by car) from the city and not easy to reach by public transport but worth it ! The temple itself is amazing and the view by the weather is superb !
Wat Phra That Sandon Bamboo Bridge Lampang

Wat Phra That Sandon Bamboo Bridge

วัดพระธาตุสันดอน
My opinion :
This charming little bamboo bridge about thirty kilometers from Lampang city is particularly beautiful when the fields it crosses are covered with emerald green rice plants. Built in 2 months, it measures 360 meters and connects the temple to the main road.
Dhanabadee Ceramic Museum Lampang

Dhanabadee Ceramic Museum

พิพิธภัณฑ์เซรามิคธนบดี
My opinion :
Lampang is famous for its ceramics, visiting a factory and museum tracing its history and showing the process of fabrication is a must do when you come here. At Dhanabadee Ceramic Museum, they still produce some pieces so you can really see them manufacturing ceramics and even make your own creations and of course buy quality ceramics at a good price.
Weekend Walking Street Lampang

Weekend Walking Street

กาดกองต้า
My opinion :
Every weekend, a long part of Talad Gao Road in Lamapang becomes pedestrian and hosts a large night market with restaurants, food and drink stalls, clothes, handicrafts ... A Walking Street, that unlike Chiang Mai walking streets, mostly see locals and very few tourists come.
Wat Pong Sanuk Lampang

Wat Pong Sanuk

วัดปงสนุก
My opinion :
This small temple whose restoration work has been awarded by UNESCO does not lack of charm especially its elevated central part hosting a chedi, a hall with a reclining Buddha and a superb unique cruciform pavilion mixture of Lanna, Chinese and Burmese styles.
Wat Phra That Doi Phra Chan Lampang

Wat Phra That Doi Phra Chan

วัดพระธาตุดอยพระฌาน
My opinion :
This temple partly perched on a mountain about twenty kilometers from Lampang is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in the province. It also offers a superb view, particularly popular at sunrise.
