Lampang is a town in Northern Thailand with a town centre population of around 60,000 permanent residents. Lampang is believed to have been founded in the 7th Century, although the city was extensively rebuilt in the 13th Century when it came under the control of the newly formed Lanna Kingdom ruled by King Mengrai whose capital was Chiang Mai. Lampang has an attractive old quarter with many teak buildings dating back the late 19th and early 20th centuries built during a period when Lampang was one of the centres of the teak logging industry attracting many foreign settlers, particularly from Burma. Lampang is also known for the horse and carriage taxi services that operate all over the town centre, although these are now priced to cater exclusively for tourists rather than commuters.
There are a number of first class tourist attractions in and around Lampang town worth visiting:
- Kad Kong Ta: Weekend market on the Talad Gao Road in the old town area of Lampang.
- Phra That Lampang Luang Temple: 13th Century temple located 12.8 km by road to the south west of Lampang Railway Station. Phra That Lampang Luang Temple is the principal tourist attraction in Lampang District.
- Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao: Town centre temple which housed the famous Emerald Buddha, now in Bangkok, from 1434 to 1468.
