The Walking Street at PAI

In this Chapter of "The Walking Street of PAI" I split it into a few Series:

The Store
The People
The Food



The Store Series...
At the PAI not only you can enjoy the peaceful magnetosphere, at night you also can come to this Night Market which local people name it as "The Walking Street". It is located at Rungsiyanon Road.
Many interesting thing you can discover when you walking along the street... You can spend hours at there to enjoy all the interesting scene, people, food and stores...

Very unique instrument selling by this young lady... Those instrument are purely hand made and invented by her boyfriend.

An orb original which call Nisu in Thailand at a store selling hand made goods while taking care of her younger one... 
Many T-Shirts are here selling with cheap price and you may choose the size which fit you... as you may realize that some number on the T-Shirts... those are the number of curves of route from Chiang Mai to PAI.


Although these people does not own a store at the walking street... but they do willing to travel here with their Van to here for selling some interesting Goods.


Never look down on such a small van... inside is full of surprise..!!


PAI is a place where in Thailand only promote art and musical atmosphere, at here you will hardly find big temple and Buddhism culture but you will always see art and music sign in every corner...
Apart from these 2 element, Shops here are all decorated with unique design, even the goods they are selling also truly interesting and creative.

Human size Bear can be found here as well..!!!




Not sure if you ever visit to a cinema which equipped with these kind of chairs... during 80's, all the cinema are still using these kind of chairs...





Handcrafting are one of the most Command thing that you can see in PAI... as they do not have mass production products... most of it are done by human hands... and you might only get it once... and might not see it when you come the second time..



Look at the drawing on the wall... then you will know how much passion the owner had put into their shops...

A young guy selling grill mushroom... they are few kind of it... and you will definitely reorder when you have your 1st bite.


Ha... this is another funny thing I saw here... he is in the middle of selling some herb tea... and you can see there are many different bowl containing different kind of herb tea... and the great part is, he is using a bamboo to serve the herb tea... not only that... each of every bamboo are with different kind of wording on it... and peoples are loving and queuing up for it.

These people are celebrating on something which we not sure, but all these people are round the street with pick up and they will cheer with you when they see you with camera... they also will give you some food pack with banana leafs...

Highlight is here!!! We saw Captain Jack Sparrow here!!! He can speak Thailand... HA! Just joking but if I not telling you, you might really think he is Johnny Depp.

This fella actually from Thailand, he been quite a famous guy in PAI, even Television reporter came to him before... he own a small shop here by selling many of his photos... with dress like Jack Sparrow... partial of his profit will goes to the donation of Northern village... You can take picture with him of course... but you have to drop some money to the box for donation.... and also you are most welcome to buy something from his shop.. so that he can have some money for the poor.

This is also another pretty young lady singing at the middle of the street....


This is not stature... he is life...and you can paint where ever you want on his body... of course he need donation for leaving...


He is quite scary when he is standing at the middle of the road without a single movement... some people even making fun of him... but most of the people are very kind to make their donation to him...

While we on out way walking back to our hotel... we met 3 young lovely lady... showing their traditional dance on the street... What a great spot for us...
