Nan city town is a charming town in northern Thailand located in a province with the same name. There are also cultural and historical sights worth visiting. For many centuries, the remote region pretty much kept to itself with few visitors in and out. But it was influenced by kingdoms in the region, first and foremost Sukhothai. It was also at times under the control of Lanna, Burma and Siam, and greatly influenced by them all, while keeping its own identity.
A diverse collection of hill tribes also populates the tranquil province including Thai Khoen, Thai Lue, Thai Puan, Thai Yai and Thai Yuan giving the region great cultural diversity although many have assimilated into the larger community.
Parts of the old city wall and several early wats dating from the Lanna period can be seen in contemporary Nan. The city’s wats are distinctive; some temple structures show Lanna influence, while others belong to the Thai Lue legacy brought from Xishuangbanna in China, where the Thai Lue people originated.
Today this northern city still feels provincial like it did years ago. It’s also characterized by Tai Lue culture and there’s nowhere better to experience this ethnic heritage. Nan offers a variety of activities and places of interest to see.
Now let’s see why Nan should be your Northern Thailand trip.
