The town is known for its simple wooden houses, many of which have been turned into guest houses, cafes or souvenir shops.
Apart from its natural surroundings, Chiang Khan is also known for its glass skywalk, which had its soft opening in July and will be officially opened next month.
Chiang Khan is also near Pak Chom district, where the beauty of the Phu Lam Duan mountain can be admired.
