About Food & Beverages in Nan town

If you are looking for restaurants, coffee shops or pubs like in Bangkok or Chiang Mai then you are at the wrong place in Nan town. Most places are serving local Northern style food or Thai style food, with a few restaurants serving food from the North-East (Isan) or South-Thailand. And in western style food the choice is very limited. But luckily times are changing and there are starting to come more restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. As Nan province is not (yet) a tourist destination for foreigners you might experience that staff at restaurants, pubs and coffee shops are not or limited able to speak English.


Destination Travel Guide Nan by Traveling to Thailand


As with all things in Nan town also restaurants, pubs and coffee shops are a bit spread over Nan town. But there are a few areas that are recommended as local Thai style areas to have a look for dinner :
  • Night Market / Noodle Street (Phakong road) 
  • Riverside Boulevard (east-side along the Nan River, directly north of the main bridge).
Most restaurants are cheap in the price range of a simple Thai food for 50 - 80 Thai baht per person exclusive drinks of course. Some restaurants that serve western food might be a bit less cheap. And a good beefsteak is about the same price as in a good restaurant in Bangkok. Following I made a list of Food & Beverage in & near Nan town and I am sure there must be many more, but I am rather motorbike riding.

      First of all nightlife in Nan town is not like Bangkok or Chiang Mai and all is in Thai style. Most Thai pubs serve Thai food all evening and most times there is live music. The latter sometimes so loud you can not talk to each other anymore. And nightlife is a bit spread over Nan town. Although you could locate a few area's. Also be aware that smaller places like this come & go, what was there last years does not have to be there now anymore. They could have moved or closed.
      • Northern side of town, along route 101 between the road to the air-port and the bypass. Here are a few pubs / restaurants and some lowkey Thai karaoke bars.
      • Next to the Fire Station Brigade, there is a new street where slowly new nightlife entertainment is developing with X2 Nigh Club and We Loft Bar & Bistro.
      • And all over town are some pubs & restaurants
      1. Fashion 1990's Bar

      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!
