Home - Travel stories - Banphot Phisai - First impression

Pia's sister Nok Ten owned a piece of land there, some ostriches were walking around, some fish swam in the pond and some plants grew on the land, mangoes bananas, peppers, .... And family of Tham (the husband of Nok Ten) lives there they take care of everything that walks, swims and grows. The place where the land of Nok Ten is located has no name yet, so remote, but fortunately, there is electricity and running water.

We have been there a few times in 2003. Each time for one day, because there are not enough sleeping places. From Bangkok it is 300 kilometers to the north, about 4 hours away, going there and back again in one day is exhausting takes a lot of time. Fortunately, most part is by good four-lane highway.

Tham is driving a songthaew (a pickup truck that serves as public transport) in Bangkok, and that is very stressfull. He has told that he would like to be more often in Banphot Phisai because of the tranquility. Along the way he became more and more enthusiastic, understandably, especially when we were past Mueang Nakhon Sawan. The environment was becoming greener, lots of trees, lots of rice fields, sugar cane, orange trees, .... And in between well-maintained homes.


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.
