Phichit Province:

          Phichit Province is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Thailand, with green valleys and picturesque wooded hills. It is the home of traditional boat racing, an ancient sport involving hundreds of competitors on each side paddling furiously for the honor of their home district or province. This annual regatta takes place on the Nan River, which runs through the provincial capital and features races between numerous low-slung wooden boats.

This is an agriculturally fertile region widely known for its fresh-water crocodiles. Phichit Province is famous all over the world as a major fruit-producing region.

A popular handicraft of the province is the colourful hand-woven fabric. More...
