Province of region Central Thailand

The province of Uthai Thani, located in the central region of Thailand, is a peaceful destination almost never visited by foreign tourists. However, you can spend 2-3 really nice days there. Its town on the banks of the Sakae Krang river is interesting, especially on weekends, and there is a pretty national park, a temple lost in the mountains, hot springs, one of the most flashy temples in Thailand, a countryside filled with rice fields a few pedal strokes from the city, artisans.... In short, it is a province which has something to appeal to tourists who like to get off the beaten track! Uthai Thani's most famous landmark is Wat Tha Sung, also known as the Glass Temple, with its unique architecture and dazzling reflections. but there are several other places worth visiting. You can just spend 2 days in town on the road to Sukhothai but to explore the whole province it will be better to be transported!

Not on the railway line, Uthai Thani is a bit complicated to reach by public transport. But if you are taking a road trip to Thailand by renting a vehicle, it is an interesting stopover between Bangkok and Sukhothai.

Uthai Thani can be visited all year round but for those who want to go to the countryside, to see in particular its giant tree and Wat Tham Khao Wong, it will be better to be there in the middle of the rainy season or at the very beginning of the dry season.

Uthai Thani is known throughout Thailand for its great Tak Bat Thewo festival at Wat Sangkat Rattana Khiri perched on its mountain at the end of Buddhist Lent.

The city and its surroundings alone are worth spending 2 days to enjoy the peaceful life of a provincial city settled on the banks of a river. You will discover the alms offerings to the monk on his boat in the...
