Local made herbal products near Nan town

OTOP shop in Nan, North Thailand

Last week we did visit Chewa Natural Herbal OTOP in Ban Namkian, about 8km east of Nan town. When staying in a hotel in Nan you might see their products in your bathroom, shampoo and soap made from natural herbal products. Made at the OTOP shop in Namkian. OTOP stands for "One Tambon, One Product", where tambon is the local district. This is a slogan introduced many years ago to promote local products. Like the natural herbal products grown & made by local people from Ban Namkian. The OTOP production & shop is at the local district office that is located right next to the local hospital. Of course there is a shop where you can buy the products and you can visit partly the production-line in a building next to the shop. Behind is also a area where you can see how the herbs are grown. Entrance free and visiting this place took us about 1 hours. For more information see Chewa Natural Herbal OTOP

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
