About Nakhon Si Thammarat
Nakhon Si Thammarat is the second largest town in Southern Thailand, and a place of significant historical and cultural importance. Few foreign visitors go to Nakhon Si Thammarat, and the ones that do tend to be passing through on their way to the islands of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan. Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport is only slightly further away from the ferry ports at Donsak (with services to Koh Samui and Koh Phangan) than Surat Thani Airport and you can travel direct from Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport to the ferry ports at Donsak.

Passing through Nakhon Si Thammarat without visiting the main sites of interest is, however, a mistake. A day spent looking around the city is richly rewarding:
- Wat Phra Mahathat: Temple established in the 13th Century which is considered the most important temple in Southern Thailand. The main feature of the temple is its 78 metre high chedi surrounded by 173 smaller chedi. The city was instrumental in the introduction of Theravada Buddhism to Thailand and the Sri Lankan architectural features of the temple indicate the city’s close association with Si Lankan at the time the temple was constructed.
- National Museum in Nakhon Si Thammarat: Major museum displaying artefacts relating to the provinces of Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung, Surat Thani, and Chumphon.
- City Walls: The walls date back to the founding of the city in 1278. Although most of the wall has disappeared parts of the Northern section of the wall and the North gate remain intact and have been restored as a visitor attraction.
