An introduction to Nakhon Sawan and Kamphaeng Phet


Recommended Posts

  • Nakhon Sawan is 250 kilometres north of Bangkok, and marks the point of confluence of two major rivers, the Ping and the Nan. These converge in Nakhon Sawan to form the Chao Phraya which flows south to Bangkok and out into the Gulf of Thailand. The city's surroundings are mostly flat, but in the city itself a hill rises about 110 metres above the plain.
  • Kamphaeng Phet was an ancient outpost town during the Sukhothai period, as evidenced by the city walls and fortifications that remain today. Before the creation of the city, legend says that there were two cities present in the location; Chakangrao and Nakhon Chum Chakangrao was built on the east bank of the Ping River while Nakhon Chum was built on the west bank of the Ping River.  source Wikipedia
