What we say: 4 stars

Prior to the dam's construction the area was filled by a number of smaller lakes and swamps, with their levels changing seasonally with the rains. Today Phayao Lake is a pretty spot popular with local tourists and is also a large fishing resource. Head down to its banks in the early morning and you'll see fishers making their livelihoods and by mid-morning the lakeside restaurants will be setting up for another day of eating and drinking.

The lakeside is also a popular recreational area, with afternoon dancing, picnicking and drinking going on all along the edge; hire a boat to coast out onto the waters in the late afternoon. When the sunset turns it on, it can be very photogenic.
