About Sakon Nakhon
Sakon Nakhon is the capital city of Sakon Nakhon Province with a population of around 75,000 people. The city is located on the edge of Nong Han Lake, which is the largest lake in the north east region of Thailand. Nong Han Lake is a major attraction with many, mainly Thai, visitors coming to the city to view the floating pink flowers which appear every year between December and March. Boat trips are popular and there are some islands, including one with a temple on it, which you can visit.
Sakon Nakhon’s history can be traced back 3,000 years and the city has some important temples, most notably of which is Phra That Choeng Chum. The biggest event in the city is the annual ‘Wax Castle Parade’ which takes place in October each year at the end of the Buddhist equivalent of lent. During this festival local people create large and elaborate models of temples and palaces out of wax, which are paraded through the city on the back of pick up trucks and flat bed trucks.
