About Santisuk in Nan province

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.
