What to see in Sakon Nakhon

The iconic temple of Sakon Nakhon is Wat Phra Tat Choeng Chum, located not far from the bus terminal. I recommend you to find accommodation not too far away from it. Among the other must-see palces, there are the Lotus Memorial Park (Chaloem Phrakiat Lotus Pond), Nong Han Lake, Wat Tham Pha Daen Temple, Ban Ta Rae community and its French colonial buildings (this christian community organizes the Christmas parade), Wat Tham Phuang and the Phra Anchan Wan Uttamo's Museum. There are also national parks with waterfalls, local handicrafts including the weaving and dyeing of indigo clothing and several addresses that offer you to make your own creations, an Indigo Street and the province is also famous for its beef. You will probably eat in Sakon Nakhon the best steaks you ever had in Thailand.

Located in the center of Sakon Nakhon city, it is the most sacred temple in the province and one of the most important in Thailand. Beautifully lit in the evening, it is interesting to visit the place by day and in the evening before it closes.
