Khao Yai’s most popular tourist attraction is the village of Primo Piazza – also known as “Little Italy”. Yes, the name says it all, and you just have to set foot in here that you will feel like you are in the West, and not Thailand anymore, it turns out “Europe in Thailand is real “.

This place is really different from other tourist destinations in Thailand. The first difference lies in the space architecture here. The houses, the cafes, then the castle, roads are unmistakenly standard European style.

Each brick wall of the classic houses are interwoven in beautiful little streets, balconies, patios, and even small decorative items such as flower baskets, bicycles, wood sea are all similar to a classic look is very Italy-like. All the little things here are so easy to make you go crazy, but then suddenly start to realize that you are in Asia, in Thailand, and not in the West.

If you do not want to just sit in cafes and restaurants, you can go to the farms scattered around the city. Feeding the lambs and horses in the romantic setting is so much the scenes in Western movies that I often see. And sure enough, just turn on the camera and you will have beautiful photos right away because any corner of the place is extremely beautiful.

The cool weather is very pleasant

Another difference of “Little Italy” is in the weather here. Tropical countries like Thailand are hot everywhere, but in this village, the weather is not hot! Perhaps because of the high altitude, the atmosphere here is always as pleasant as Dalat in Vietnam. Thanks to the cold weather, the place is even more European.

Thai people themselves are very fond of coming here because everything seems to be in harmony. Walking beside your lover in the cool weather, within a peaceful and large, nothing can be better than that. As night temperatures are low, do not forget to bring a warm coat to avoid getting cold.

The daylight in “Little Italy” is cool but sunny. Dine together to enjoy a delicious taste of cinnamon cream.
