Banphot Phisai is the northernmost district (amphoe) of the province of Nakhon Sawan. The district borders the province of Kamphaeng Phet.
It is a beautiful, fertile area, usually with plenty of water.
We have ended up in a small village (muban) whose name we do not know, because one of Pia's sisters owned a plot of land there. On that land she kept ostriches who later succumbed to the bird flu.
Getting there is difficult.
Buses or minibuses run between Banphot and Bangkok, we do not know how long it takes to get there.
By car you follow the road to the north, and turn right when you are in Khanu Woralaksaburi. After a few kilometers you arrive in Tha Ngio, where you can do some shopping on the market. There are another 15 miles to go on winding, partly unpaved roads with many holes.
The coordinates are 15°56'9"N 99°58'56"E.
Our first visit was in 2001, our last in 2003.
