It's a different place from most of the Thai towns & cities we visit, slower pace and some good Temples to visit, also the Artists who live locally, their galleries or shops are worth a look.
No 7/11 my Thai Wife said, what sort of place is this, an ok place to visit, the locals are friendly and their are some nice places to look at an relax in.
Lamphun is not a big city, but it has very interesting Buddhaist Temples scattered throughout the Town.
We were there during the Buddha festival, early November, and that was very interesting with lots of beautiful street decorations and loads of fabulous fireworks. The City does not have a lot of tourists, most people stay in Chang Mai, but Lamphun is very close to all the Tourist spots. They people are very friendly but don't have a good understanding of English. They do try to be helpful, which is appreciate. Worth a look.
