What to see in Nan

When you come to Nan, there are two things you must see: on the wall of Wat Phumin, there is a painting of a man whispering to his wife which is the emblem of the city and is used in many different forms and in the late afternoon, go to Wat Pra That Khao Noi and admire the sunrise illuminating Nan in front of the standing Buddha statue facing the city. If you have not done that, you did not really come to Nan !

There are other interesting temples such as the white temple, the Golden Temple and a few others, a district of wooden houses and the museum of the city and of course Nan boat races in the summer (dates vary each year according to the lunar calendar).

Must-visits in Nan

Wat Phumin Nan

Wat Phumin

วัดภูมินทร์
My opinion :
It is the most important temple in Nan? It houses murals among the most beautiful in Thailand and probably the most famous mural painting in the country that also became the emblem of Nan city. A must see when you visit to Nan!
Wat Phra That Khao Noi Nan

Wat Phra That Khao Noi

วัดพระธาตุเขาน้อย
My opinion :
Do not miss it when you come to Nan! Especially at sunset. The sight of the golden image of Buddha walking with the valley, the mountains and Nan city below is just amazing !
