About Nan

Nan is the capital city of Nan Province in the Northern Region of Thailand, although with around 22,000 permanent residents Nan is more of a small town than it is a ‘city’. Nan Province borders Laos and is very mountainous and isolated. Not so many foreign visitors come to Nan, and many of those who do are on route to Luang Prabang via Xayaboury.

Travel from Nan to Luang Prabang

There are several routes via which you can travel from Thailand to Luang Prabang and the route from Nan to Luang Prabang is one of the best because the scenery you pass through is spectacular and the countryside largely uninhabited except for small hill tribe settlements.
