First impression

Home - Travel stories - Nan - First impression

We got our first impression of Nan about 12 years ago.
That impression was confirmed during our second visit in 2010.

Nan is a quiet, almost sleepy town in the far north of Thailand. There are almost no high-rising buildings, the higest one we saw was the hotel, 6 floors.
There are many, many traffic-lights, at almost every intersection.. Still, there is not much traffic in Nan.

Along the river there are a few restaurants, and a boulevard. It's nice for an evening stroll, but it is very quiet.
The southern part of town, with a lot of beautiful temples, is the same.

We enjoyed our visit to Nan, but is is not a place we want to visit every year, because it's too quiet. But maybe, if you know your way around, there is much more fun.


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.
