Why go there

Home - Travel stories - Nakhon Sawan - Why go there

We decided to go to Nakhon Sawan for two reasons.
Pia's sister Nok owns a piece of land in Banphot Phisai, a small city in the province. She has an oistrich farm there. In 2003 we went there three times, more about that on our Banphot Phisai page. We liked the place very much, so we decided to take a look at the provincial capitol.
The second reason is the Lonely Planet. According to the Lonely Planet, Nakon Sawan is a nasty place with nasty inhabitants, no place to go. For some reasons nothing is said about Nakhon Sawan province. Pity.

We stayed in Nakhon Sawan for only 2 nights, just before Chinese New Year. During Chinese New Year every hotel in town is booked, so we could not stay any longer. First day, we arrived late, the station is located outside town, so it was a bit difficult to get a song-thaew driver to take us to our hotel. A fellow-passenger gave us some help, so we were able to reach our hotel at a fair price. We had dinner at the hotel (for the first time!), good, tasty food and good service. And after dinner we had a drink in an open-air bar behind the hotel, where a band was playing.
Behind the hotel is also the largest disco of northern Thailand, not so nice in the middle of the night.


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.
