Tak is a small town with about 20,000 permanent residents located in the Northern Region of Thailand. Tak is a pleasant town with around 20,000 residents that doesn’t get many foreign visitors. Foreign visitors who do come are for the greater part in the town on route to somewhere else, most likely the more interesting Myanmar border town of Mae Sot or perhaps the nearby Bhumibol Dam, Taksin Maharat National or Lan Sang National Parks, or the slightly further away Mae Moei National Park Protection Unit and Mae Tuen Wildlife Sanctuary. The area around Tak is lightly populated and notable for its stunning scenery.
In Tak town and nearby there are four locations which attract visitors:
- Ban Chin Alley: 500 metre long narrow street in Tak town centre with lots of historic wooden houses built by Tak’s resident Chinese-Thai community.
- Taksin Maharat Shrine: Popular and elaborate shrine to King Taksin the Great who was Governor of Tak before he became King of the short lived Thonburi Kingdom, which was the forerunner of the Kingdom of Siam.
- 200 Year Rattanakosin Bridge: Suspension bridge over the Ping River in the centre of Tak built to commemorate the founding of Bangkok as the new capital city of Thailand.
- Wat Phra Boromthat: 11th Century Burmese style temple located to 27 km the north of Tak town centre.
