Is there a big drug problem in Pai? Is it true they do random drug tests on tourists? Would like to know the crowd/atmosphere before i go.
Where in the world did you hear that??? NO. How could the police make you do that? All it would take is one tourist to undergo the police MAKING Them take a drug test and not another tourist would ever go near Pai, maybe even anywhere north. Not to mention that Pai is not the only place to get drugs should one want them. Bangkok and all points south have just as much, many drugs as the north does. Somebody is pullin your leg.
However, should you get caught with any drugs while in Thailand and you of course are subject to their laws and they can be harsh. You get arrested, a consular officer will visit you to see that you are still alive and treated decently and then say, BYE! Thought I should mention that considering you would be duped to believe and ask the question!
I actually read it somewhere- twice. But thanks for clearing it up.
I read that too. Is it easy to find cannabis/opium IF one was that way inclined???
Yes it is easy to find. But you always run the risk of scams being run on you. Such as, someone will offer or you'll ask someone that you THINK you may trust, they'll sell it to you and the next thing you know is the police will come calling on you. Remember, your rights and the police search and seizsure laws are different. They don't need to ask to search your person, room etc. Maybe this is where these rumours came from. Unless you live there and know people you will always run that risk. Not worth it if you ask me, but there are hundreds in Thai prisons who thought they knew better. At the very least you'd have a hefty fine and probably pronounced persona non gratis, which for me, in of itself would be punishment enough.
As always, know the laws, know your rights in each country that you visit. Not knowing them is no excuse for doing something that you probably already know is wrong. Remember, these countries have a great deal of political pressure placed on them from the west, US, to stamp out drugs in their country. The locals may use opiates, particularly in the north, but the police take a dim view on foreigners doing it. Double standard to be sure but who can blame them.
good luck, be safe, and have fun
Travel Tips for Pai
Waterfall: really cold water for cooling down...Sun until early afternoon, to reach by motorbike through Lahu and the hilltribe villages on the mountain
Mae Yen Waterfall :
This waterfall is Pai's most beautiful and can only be reached by a fairly difficult hike of about 3 hours.
The total drop is about 30 m and most times of the year significant water flows to provide bathing and a serene place to the enjoy your lunch. If you are quiet and observant, you will see jungle animals along the way
Mosquito repellent & more
sturdy shoes to visit the caves DO make sense! This is one of the two areas of Thailand where there'a a high-risk of malaria, so it makes sense to stock up with good repellent. it's also a good idea to use malarone (or to have it as emergency-treatment at least). a swimsuit is recommended for hotmineral baths, especially those in the "wildreness" - and maybe a sarong too, since locals bathe in sarongs!
The fish cave is in a complex of beautiful gardens and there is a beautiful mountain panorama beyond the valley. There is a pool with large fish that you can feed with bread which you can buy at the park's official hut.
Definitely one of my favourite places in Thailand! And i've been there a few times. It's a quaint little town and hardly any tourists then. So it's really pleasant to just walk or cycle around, acquainting oneself to the place & its people.
Probably what makes Pai so special and pretty to spend the days away is partly because of Golden Hut! This is the only guesthouse we would stay at each time we're back at Pai. It's in a little corner, facing a 'lake'. It's almost in a world of its own. Pretty flowers surrounding the entire compound. Simply lovely the place! & so tranquil.
The place that you can hide from busiling world
