The villages Ban Du Phong and Ban Phong are referred to as Santisuk village in Santisuk district, about 30 km east of Nan town. Not really a tourist destination, you will be passing Santisuk while taking the backroad to Bo Klua. It is good place for a pit-stop as there are 2 gasoline stations, Bank with ATM, small restaurants and a few small shops. There even is a district hospital, police station, school, daily fresh market and of course a temple (Wat Don Mongkol). Be aware that there is also a village Ban Santisuk with Namtok Santisuk, but that is at a totally different location in Nan province. And in Phayao province, just over the border with Nan province is also a village with the name Santisuk.
