About Nakhon Sawan
Nakhon Sawan is a medium sized city with a population of just under 100,000 permanent residents located at the southern edge of Thailand’s Northern Region. The city is strategically located at the point where the Ping and Nan Rivers merge to form the Chao Phraya River which flows southward through the centre of Bangkok. Before the 20th Century, travel by boat was the main form of transport in Thailand and this meant that Nakhon Sawan was an important centre of trade. In modern times Nakhon Sawan has ceased to be a major commercial centre but it remains a large thriving city nonetheless. Nakhon Sawan has little in the way of tourist attractions and attracts few visitors, but the city itself is pleasant featuring a large park with a lake in the middle called Paradise Park which is very much the recreational and social centre of Nakhon Sawan.
The only real tourist attraction in Nakhon Sawan is Wat Khiriwong. Wat Khiriwong is a large temple which encompasses a hill overlooking the city. At the top of the hill is large golden pagoda called the Phra Chulamanee Chedi. The pagoda itself is ornately decorated inside and out and has three level inside which are free to enter. From the top of the Phra Chulamanee Chedi there are panoramic views over Nakhon Sawan and the surrounding countryside which is pretty much flat as far as you can see.
