The remote province of Nan, is the base for traveling beyond the highlights in North Thailand. The history of Nan begins in the end of the 14th century and it did stay semi-independent until 1931. In the 60's and 70's it was home to the so called communists of Thailand and off limit for traveling. Historically & culturally Nan has influence from the old Lanna Kingdom but also from the Thai Lue that came from China. Something you can still see in the architecture of the many old temples and some old mansions. The city of Nan is home to many beautiful old temples, cultural heritage but also lovely restaurants, guesthouses and stunning resorts. But the upcountry province is also home to beautiful National Parks, waterfalls, mountains and descents from minority hill-tribes living in the still rural area's of Nan province.

For visiting & exploring Nan city you should take about 2 nights/3 days. For visiting the upcountry area of Nan province you should take an additional 2 nights/3 days. Nan city has an airport, so it is easy to fly-in from Bangkok. Would you like to make a trip like this? Then contact me at The Little Elephant in Thailand for more information.
