Nakhon Sawan Province :   

            Considered as the doorway of the north, Nakhon Sawan is an ancient city located in the north-central part of Thailand. This region has a rich cultural history and is also known as Pak Nam Pho. Due to its pristine natural beauty, the land is considered as the heavenly abode of Gods. Nakhon Sawan Province is the point where Ping, Wang, Nan and Yom rivers join together to form Chao Phraya River, the most important waterway of Thailand.

          There are several tourist hot spots spread over the entire region. Prominent among these are Khao No-Khao Kaeo, a limestone mountain and Khao Tham Phra. These mountains have large ancient Buddhist caves, stalactites and stalagmites. Wat Bang Mafo, Wat Tham Phon Sawan and Chao Pho Thepharak-Chao Mae Thapthim are some of the valuable ancient temples and shrines of the region. Chan Sen and Khok Mai Den are some of the ancient cities, which represent the rich heritage of this region. The best tourist destination is the origin of Chao Phraya River.
