Pai ThailandMotorbiking around Pai Pai is one of the most naturally beautiful places I have seen. Nestled in the mountains in northern Thailand and home to waterfalls you can swim under and slide down, Pai is a vegetarian, yoga lovers’, tea drinkers’ dream. I’ve never encountered a place quite like it.
