Who needs to go to Las Vegas to see the Grand Canyon when you’ve got the stunningly dramatic Pai Canyon. Ok, we admit it’s not quite on the same level as the Grand Canyon, but the views are still pretty spectacular.
Only a 10-minute bike ride south of Pai, it’s one of the best places to find a spot on the mountain and watch the sun disappear for the day.
The first viewpoint, a 5-minute walk up the stairs, is where most tourists tend to flock, making it a pretty crowded affair, especially at sunset.
If you’re up for the challenge, you can hike further along the skinny ridges to less crowded viewpoints. Just make sure you’re wearing appropriate footwear as the sides are unprotected and it’s a long way down (about 30m to be precise).
Making the whole thing even better, entrance is free!
