Trader houses from yesteryear

What we say: 3 stars

During Lampang’s 19th century heyday as the centre of the teak trade, this would have been a bustling riverside area with Thai, Chinese, British and Burmese merchants all located along this road.

Today the traders are gone but their houses remain. It's worth taking a stroll down the road to see some of the intriguing melds of different styles, and the street has several coffee shops to break up your walk. Talart Kao comes alive on weekends and particularly Saturday and Sunday evenings when a popular walking street market opens up.
