Just a small river, nothing special. There are a lot of resort, hotel and lodge built by the river, if you like relaxing place, can try to stay here. Portion of the river just at the end of Pai town main road, we parked our scooter at town area and just walked there. More photos and details please refer my... More

We went tubing with a couple of beers! It was a really fun way to spend the afternoon, just floating around and relaxing.

The Pai Valley is absolutely beautiful. It is spoiled by over tourism... but only a little bit. The river is pristine. There are some problems, like agricultural run-off, damage from flood control measures in the town. and extra silt from dredging, but for the most part the river is nice and clean. People who say there is industrial damage to... More

The river is a short walk from many of the hotels and guest houses in the night market area. It's also a popular area for camping, either in tents or wooden chalets. We were only in Pai for the one day but there are clearly a number of sports activities which take place on the water.

Pai tubing is a good way to fill an evening but timing is everything! Look at the flow and imagine floating down it with a few beers. If the water level is to high, it's probably dirty as he'll, to low and you will find yourself walking or.... Scooting a lot. Late November is perfect and. Think in a month... More

Actually it's 2 bridges - neither of them the original built by locals under orders from the invading Japanese. They pulled that one down. One carries the man road into Pai, the other is a walkway across the river. I cycled from Pai via the country route past the elephant parks etc. A great cycle ride through country lanes. About...

Niels sounds like the Laos owner of the Sunset Bar judging by the level of his English. This guy fashions himself as some kind of gangster even if his angel wing back tattoos are more than a little effeminate. So the reason I'm writing this review is to inform any prospective guests that this guy is a psycho. If you... More

You should visit the pai river. Not only because of the beautiful river, also for the most adventurous bridge. It is more attractive then the memorial bridge. And you should also visit the sunset bar. Rafting trough the river and see the most amazing environment. The cocktails and buckets at the cockailbar are so good! We had a great day... More

Don't look down on this small river. It adds some unspoken beautiful to the valley of Pai. Without this river, perhaps no body would want to stay in those guest house.
