Positives: 1. There are plenty of fish in the lake 2. Beautiful place to chill 3. Friendly staff Negatives: 1. The equipment is old and basic (politely said), hence if you really like your game, bring your own reel and rod. 2. The bait is...More

Sorry you feel you were taken advantage of, the price has been 200 Baht for many many years now but it had not been updated on Trip Advisor. This has now been corrected, thank you.

Nice surroundings, great food, cold drinks, friendly hosts, fish caught, all at a good price. What more could you ask for? I spoke with people who were staying there and they said the rooms are also good value for money. I’ll be back

We liked it that much we stayed an extra day to return. It was our first time fishing and the lady told us everything we needed to know. We caught 5 fish within an hour. Perfect for lazing around with a beer in the sun.

Nice atmosphere, cheap rental (100 baht per rod) and beer, good wifi and friendly company - what more could you want! Just remember that the best fishing occurs in the morning and early evening

A must do if you like go fishing. Not expensive fir half day fishing. You must know how to use the equipement or you will never catch anything. Very quiet place.

I hired a bicycle, it was uphill most of the way there though but an easy ride back. A motorbike would be much easier obviously but when I go next time I think I’ll take a taxi and have a few beers during the day

I hope the answers to your two questions are 'yes' and 'yes'. But hopefully Pai Piranha will see your question and answer themselves. We definitely borrowed equipment, and as Pai is a place that young travellers enjoy, I... More
