Spicy Pai is a little out of town; however, it is an extremely unique backpacking experience. The main building has a grass roof over a huge, open wooden deck and hammocks; ice-boxes to purchase cheap beer and drinks; a TV and games area and a whole bunch of chilled travelers. The crew are amazingly friendly and helpful – it’s a giant family feel. Spicy Pai always has things going on like weekly BBQs on the deck, group local pool visits, motorbike hire, treks and discounted activities. Worth the trek!
