Dont mix up Palio with Primo though they are of same Italian concept. Palio is a township-like attraction. You can enjoy taking pictures freely while combing thru the allies of the small town of Italy Tuscan. Primo is a restaurant but also has same construction but has an entry fee. Certainly if you spend 900 Baht for a 1000 baht... More

B100 per person entry fee - I don't pay to go to a restaurant!! We never bothered to go inside... What is the mentality of owners like these

Visited this place 3x. Twice at day and once at night During the day the place is very crowded but there's lots to do. Plenty of local shopping in a European setting. I preferred the night visit because it was quiet, cool and there was a small cafe that served amazing food and drinks (European beers). It was pleasant. Definitely... More

Walking around the small winding streets of this quaint area and you almost feel as if you are in the grounds of somewhere in Italy...and not in Khao Yai, Thailand. Filled with small and big fountains and little statues placed around the area, you can have a cuppa along the main courtyard or simply stroll around including a drop into... More

From the terracotta-toned buildings and lush greenery with an unmistakably Mediterranean vibe, to the dairy farms and vineyards, I felt like I was in Tuscany! The Italian atmosphere is best experienced in the central Piazza Palio where you get an enchanting experience of wandering through baroque-style buildings with a number of quaint coffeehouses, restaurants and bars all around.

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
