Home - Travel stories - Nakhon Sawan - Introduction

The city of Nakhon Sawan, capital of the equaly named province, is located about 260 km north of Bangkok. Nakhon Sawan is on the route to the north, to, among other, Chiang Mai and Phitsanulok.
Nakhon Sawan is reached from Bangkok via a good four-lane highway in about 4 hours by car. The train connection is also good, it takes about 5 hours.

Near Nakhon Sawan two major rivers, the Nan and Ping come together. The river then flows further as the Chao Phraya to Bangkok. The rivers have ensured that Nakhon Sawan has become an important commercial center.
Water transport is not so important anymore, but because of its location along a major north-south route Nakhon Sawan has remained an important trading center.

Our last visit was in December 2017.

The coordinates are 15°42'18"N 100°8'15"E.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
