When you are in Lampang in North Thailand you should visit the old town by horse carriage. It goes slow as the life in downtown Lampang still is. It is a great way to see the real Lampang with the many old temples and houses. And if you understand a bit Thai the driver will inform and tell you about Lampang.
Photo under is the "White Temple of Lampang" as a kind of copy of the White Temple of Chiang Rai.
