Lampang is the third largest city in the Northern Region of Thailand with a population of around 60,000. According to legend Lampang was founded in the 7th Century and over its history the city has been part of a succession of different empires including those centred in Burma, Laos and Cambodia before formally becoming part of the Kingdom of Siam (Thailand) at the start of the 20th Century. The city’s diverse origins is evident in its culture and architecture.
Relatively few foreign visitors come to Lampang which is over shadowed by better developed tourist destinations in the North of Thailand, such as Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, and as such the city is somewhat lacking in amenities for foreign visitors and little English is spoken by the resident of Lampang. For the intrepid visitor Lampang has a lot to offer. To the north of the city centre Lampang has an interesting ‘old quarter’ with lots of historic buildings, notably temples and old teak houses the most famous of which is Baan Sao Nok, which has been turned into a museum attraction. A popular option for visitors to Lampang is to tour the sights in the old quarter in a horse and carriage. Horse and carriage operators can be found for hire at a number of point in the city such as near the bus station and near the Atsawin Market.
