We stopped here every time on holiday in Pak Chong. Despite the growing popularity of this attraction, the administration has taken care of a large and comfortable car parking. Still a lot of fun and cozy shops and cafes, is something to see and photograph. The place is unique - the feeling that you are not in Thailand, does not... More

An Italian village in Thailand. However unlike a genuine Italian village full of traditional restaurants and wonderful food shops, this painted concrete village is full of trinket shops selling things that no one appears to want. This was our third visit and many of the shops now lie empty.

Palio is a okay community mall with stylish building design but it's kinda boring place to visit (in our opinion). There are many different shops to go to, badly it is not really attractive for us because most of them are boring pricey shops. Moreover, if when there are many people, you cannot really do anything here, not even a... More

Palio was on our tour from Bangkok to our resort, but it should not surprise you that it was not authentic, and I am at a loss to know why someone would create an Italianate themed shopping centre. We spent less than five minutes walking in and out and back to see more authentic Thai tourist sites, (such as the... More

A very classic place of attraction in Pakchong, Khao Yai. The architecture reminded us of classic Italy; but it was also the products available within the site that impressed us. There were souvenir shops, many restaurants (various international cuisines and Thai). Highly recommended for any couple visiting Khao Yai - it will only sweeten your relationship! :D

Looks lovely and i appreciate a free entrance but there is nothing much to see or buy or do apart from taking a few pictures. Stop there for a cuppa to break your journey. They have a clean toilet which is nice. Gps 14.32.281-101.23.980 . Took us 2.5 hrs from bkk.

A place simulates mexican-styled southern California architecture. There are lots of goods,gifts and other handmade,self-designed stuff. Mostly occupied by young couples.

Visiting there on Saturday and Sunday was not a good idea for those who wants peaceful. A lot of shops with variety product categories. Infrastructures were reproduced from Italian village style which it was nice for those people who love photographing.

This shopping center not far from Khao Yai National Park is built in Italian style.... I wonder how many tourists come to Thailand to see shopping center Italian style? Not me... Nevertheless the center is nice with not many shops... I purchased nothing.. OK to visit, but nothing to miss if you did not go..
