What to see in Nakhon Si Thammarat

In Nakhon Si Thammarat city, the must visits are obviously Wat Phra Mahathat Woramahawihan and its great white chedi and the museum of shadow puppets which is not very far from the temple. Outside the city, you can go to Khiriwong village in the mountains known for batik and interesting starting point to discover the waterfalls of Khao Luang National Park. You will find many homestays there. There is also the Buddha Park in Thung Yai which is especially interesting for the photo of its alignments of statues. Ban Wang Horn in the South of the province with its streams, nature, kayak rides also seems interesting but I have not tested yet. Anyway once thing is sure if you go to Nakhon Si Thammarat, go to Khanom and its beaches at least for 2 days too !
I also listed at the end of the page some good tours, excursions and activities that you can do in Nakhon Si Thammarat or from Nakhon Si Thammarat. Click here to see them.

Must-visits in Nakhon Si Thammarat

Wat Phra Mahathat Woramawihan

วัดพระมหาธาตุวรมหาวิหาร
My opinion :
It is the emblematic temple of Nakhon Si Thammarat, the most important of southern Thailand and one of the most important in the country, because it is a first class royal temple. its big white chedi is the main element. It contains a relic of Buddha.

Shadow puppets museum

หนังตะลุง สุชาติ ทรัพย์สิน
My opinion :
This museum is dedicated to Nang Talung, a traditional shadow puppets theater. You can see shadow puppets show and also the process of creating puppets. There is also an interesting gallery gathering a collection of ancient puppets. This is one of two must-visits in Nakhon Si Thammarat !

Ban Khiri Wong Village

บ้านคีรีวง
My opinion :
This village, 25 kilometers from Nakhon Si Thammarat, is an example of ecotourism. Between treks in the neighboring national park and its waterfalls and discovery of the local handicrafts like batik and tie-dye of clothes, the best is to spend at least 2 days there.
