About Tak Town
Tak is a small riverside town in the Northern region of Thailand with a town centre population of a little over 20,000 permanent residents. Not many foreign visitors come to Tak and the town itself has no major tourist attractions although it is somewhere people through on the way to visit the waterfalls, forests and massive Bhumibol Dam in Tak Province. The town is at its liveliest during the annual Loy Krathong festival when local people float thousands of coconuts shells with candles inside down the Ping River, which is a beautiful sight viewed from the pedestrian only suspension bridge in the centre of town.
If you do find yourself in Tak for a day or two then we suggest you do the following:
- Hotel: The Silayok Grand Hotel is good standard hotel in the centre of town which is good value for money.
- Eat: Across from the Silayok Grand Hotel the biker themed Pirom Station is a relaxed bar which serves great Thai and International food at cheap prices with service by a very friendly Thai motorbike enthusiast.
- Walk: Stroll along the Ban Chin Alley which is a narrow street with a variety of old Chinese style wooden houses.
- Visit: The shrine to King Taksin, the first king of the current royal dynasty of Thailand, is well worth visiting. King Taksin was Governor of Tak early on in his public service career.
