Sukhothai – Phrae - Nan

 
Sukhothai

The superb temples and monuments of this great city have been lovingly restored, and Sukhothai Historical Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a must-see for all travelers.

Founded in the 13th century was the first truly independent Thai Kingdom. A total of eight kings ruled Sukhothai but the gradual decline of Sukhothai occurred during the reigns of the last two kings. The end of this first Thai kingdom occurred in 1365 when it became a vassal state of Ayutthaya, a rising power to the south.

Phrae

The former center of Thailand’s teak industry, Phrae features many old teak mansions as well as protected forests ideal for hiking and spotting exotic wildlife.

Phrae is a province steeped in legend and that’s no surprise as the city was founded around the same time as the Lanna and Sukhothai Kingdoms nearly 800 years ago. Renowned for its vast teak forests, Phrae features a number of colonial style teak homes and mountainous forests including three national parks.

Nan

The provincial capital of Nan has a relaxed charm, an interesting history, some impressive temples, and a good museum. There are also a number of quality restaurants and bars along the town’s riverfront to plan your adventures into the countryside or relax after sightseeing in the town.

The rich natural beauty of Nan makes it an ideal destination for trekking as the remote province sees far fewer visitors than neighboring Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai

Many of the fabrics here were made in Ban Had Saew Village where the Tai Puan people who built their community during the reign of Rama II were known for their beautiful home-use hand-woven essentials that they passed the knowledge through many generations before the textiles became very commercial as you’ll see many shops are selling these pieces of artwork.

Among the remains of the 19 monuments inside the city wall, highlights are the first three monuments from the entrance, Wat Chang Lom, Wat Chedi Chet Thaew and Wat Nang Phaya.

Wat Chang Lom, the compound to the right of the entrance is distinctly Sri Langkan in style, with a characteristic stupa and 39 laterite elephant buttresses. The elephants at Wat Chang Lom are quite different from those found at other temples.

The temple was built in the Sukhothai period and the temple was restored by famous monks Khru Ba Srivichai in 1924.

The highlight is the 33-meter-tall Chiang Saen-style phra that (pagoda), wrapped with bright brass sheets, which enshrines holy relics of Lord Buddha. The name of the temple refers to traditional fine silk woven found in Sip Song Panna, which was first used to wrap the pagoda when the temple was first constructed.

This temple is also a home of Thailand’s famous ancient wall murals which appears on the wall paintings, in Tai Lue style. It is considered highly valuable. Archeologists believed that these beautiful wall murals were created during the major restoration in 1867.

The museum’s style of the building is a combination between European style in the age of King Rama V and the native arts of Nan. It was originally used as the royal pavilion and the work place of Royal Governor Phra Chao Suriyawong Pharit Det.

The exhibition of the museum utilizes windows, natural light, and the airy structure, making all visitors feel at home rather than at the museum, comfortable, and enjoy the displayed items even more.
