General information about the province of Lamphun

Province capital: Lamphun
Name in Thai: ลำพูน

Location on map


Province of region Northern Thailand

Visitors can also explore Doi Khun Tan National Park. The Ko Luang Waterfall is also magnificent. There are several very interesting temples offering lovely views of the mountains in the province.

Lamphun is also, from my point of view, an interesting destination for the Loy Krathong festivities.

Whether you are interested in discovering historical sites, hiking in nature or immersing yourself in local culture, Lamphun province has no shortage of attractions. On the other hand, to visit it without only discovering the town of Lamphun, you need to be transported!
