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 Ming Muang Nan

Wat Ming Muang

วัดพระบาทมิ่งเมือง
My opinion :
Completely white, this temple is surprising even if it is very modest compared to the beautiful White Temple in Chiang Rai. 2 minutes walk from Wat Phumin , take the time to pay him a visit.
Wat Sri Panton Nan

Wat Sri Panton

วัดศรีพันต้น
My opinion :
This fully golden temple is the second monochrome temple in Nan. It is located just a few minutes walk from Nan white temple.
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 !
Chicken coop spa Nan

Chicken coop spa

สปาสุมไก่
My opinion :
If you are looking for something surprising and relaxing near Nan, this place is for you ! Located in a small local community 15 kilometers from the city, this spa has strange little saunas, the sum gai spas. There are very few places in Thailand that offer it but it's becoming more and more popular because it's nice and it makes funny souvenir pictures.
Ban Sao Luang weaving village Nan

Ban Sao Luang weaving village

บ้านซาวหลวง
My opinion :
This small village 20 kilometers from Nan has several weaving workshops including a large one that can be visited to see the tedious work on the looms. And of course, you can buy local craft production.
