Great traders' houses from yesteryear

What we say: 3 stars

During the late 19th century Lampang was a large trading centre with most goods arriving by river. Talad Kao Rd was the heart of this bustle, 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 walk down the road to see some of the intriguing melds of different styles.

The street comes alive on weekends and particularly Saturday night with a walking street market. It was actually pretty great, with a good variety of goods and snacks on offer and definitely at up country cheap prices.
