I made a stopover with my family at Palio Khao Yai, on our way back to Bangkok, and I have never regretted that I made this decision. The only regret that I have is the shortage of time to really explore this Italian-themed shopping centre as we were rushing back to another location before rushing back to Bangkok. I will... More

It's very unfortunate to see this Palio tourist attraction is not attractive at all. The place is so quiet and many shops had closed down. Not worth to go if your itinerary is packed with other places to visit. It took us only 20 minutes to have a quick pictures taken.

Palio, a picturesque little Italy shopping centre is located in Nakhon Ratchasima and also the neighbor of Thame Valley. Inspired by the feeling of wandering through a small town in Tuscany, you will see baroque-style buildings covered in ivy, a manicured garden, and a replica of the famous Bocca della Verita carving in Rome on pedestrian streets and alleyways. Overall,... More

The place is packed with tourist over the weekend. Entrance is free. Most of the shops are selling souvenirs and a few cafes around to enjoy a sip of coffee.

Palio resembled a ghost town, with half of the shops shuttered. There was the Jim Thompson shop which was the one shop that was maintained. I arrived with my kids and they had fun running round the narrow alleys, playing hide and seek. There are a few photo spots but other than that, nothing at all.

We first thought that it was some place like Primo Piazza but it was actually a shopping compound. Probably less than half of the stores were opening during my visit. The building still looked okay but apparently not under good maintenance. You could still find some good spots to take photo. The never-to-miss spot is actually the FOOD COURT! it... More

Most of the shops were vacant. Not sure if it's because it was low season. There are a couple of food places, and the standard MK and coffee shops you find around Thailand but apart from Jim Thompson's place there was nothing. Now, if you like to take photos and want to take some of an Italian looking place with... More

10% occupancy rate of all stalls. Most of the shops are vacant! Worse tourist spot ever! Suggest to skip this tourist spot :(
