When I first heard about Pai, I was a little skeptical to go. It's a small town 3-4 hours west of Chiang Mai on some very questionable roads. I heard there wasn't really a whole lot to do there, but then I also heard people who go there usually spend way longer than they originally planned for. It turns out both were true. We stayed at a place called Darling View Point and were supposed to be in a dorm, but when we showed up the owner "darling" loved Canadians so much she upgraded us to a room with four double beds between four people. We met a guy there named Dave who turned out to be a beauty from New York and we pretty much spent all our days in Pai with him, and have met up with him twice since. We originally planned three nights there, but ended up staying five because we liked it so much. The food was the best we've had in Thailand at a couple different restaurants and it was a small enough town to walk from end to end in about twenty minutes so we got to know it pretty well by the end which we liked. There's really nothing to do right in town, but we rented mopeds for two days and cruised about 15 km out to a place called Pai Canyon which I got some pretty good pictures of that I'll upload whenever I get a computer, and then we went another 15 km or so to a waterfall that I forget the name of, which was pretty awesome. The next day with the mopeds we just cruised in and out of town to get food and whatnot until six when we went to a local natural hot spring that gets hot enough to boil an egg at the top of it. The days after we pretty much just hung out on our hammocks and read and then walked the five minute walk to town for meals, with the exception of swimming in a community pool that was near our guest house one day. Overall, Pai has been my favourite place in Thailand so far for reasons that are honestly pretty hard to explain.
