While it is certainly not Thailand’s answer to American’s Grand Canyon, Pai Canyon is a pretty spot with lovely views. On the road to Chiang Mai and about 8km from the center of Pai, look for clearly marked signs identifying the turnoff from Highway 1095. From there, climb the concrete staircase to reach the panoramic viewpoint of the Pai Valley. The canyon is a popular lookout spot and a place to catch a good sunset.
