Nakhon Nayok is a destination that has arguably been taken for granted by many tourists. Located just 106 kilometers from Bangkok, Nakhon Nayok has many attractions that may be visited on day trips. Consequently, Nakhon Nayok is typically visited by day trippers or those making a brief stop over on the way to other destinations. However, Nakhon Nayok features refreshing natural beauty, including waterfalls and parks, renowned historical sites, a number of soft adventure activities, and a variety of delectable fruits.The northern part of Nakhon Nayok is located in the Dong Phaya Yen mountain range, an area covered by the Khao Yai National Park. Yod Khao Kiew, its highest peak, is 1,292 meters above sea level. In contrast, the central part of the province is a rather flat river plain formed by the Maenam Nakhon Nayok, a river popular with white water rafting enthusiasts.

The provincial seal says a lot about Nakhon Nayok. It features a circle indicating the unity of the people of Nakhon Nayok, an elephant raising an ear of rice that represents the fertile forests where numerous elephants dwell and the ear of rice referring to the fruitful farming in the region, and a pile of straw, a stand of trees, and billowy clouds in the background depicting the natural beauty of the province that includes portions of Khao Yai National Park and contains the Nakhon Nayok River, a popular destination for rafting.

Wander around Nakhon Pathom

On such a hot day like this you might not want to take on a long journey. So today Sukjai will recommend you a destination near Bangkok. It is Nakhon Pathom. Nakhon Pathom is the gate to the west of Thailand. There are a number of tourist attractions in the province, some of which will be presented by Sukjai today!

The most outstanding landmark in Nakhon Pathom is definitely the Phra Pathom Chedi, the tallest stupa in the world. Visit and pay respect if you have a chance to come by. Another interesting spot in the province is the Thai Human Imagery Museum which houses a number of amazingly human-like wax sculptures. The wax museum tells the story of Thai traditions and displays wax statues of important people in Thai history.

Sukjai is getting hungry now so let’s drop by at Don Wai Floating Market! The goods sold at the market are general stuff, foods, fruits, and souvenirs. One thing you should not miss here is the pomelo, which is the highlighted product of the province. Nakhon Pathom is so well-known for its sweet pomelo that the fruit is mentioned in its slogan. After shopping, Sukjai takes a rest on a raft by the river. What a relaxing atmosphere it can offer!

You can easily find happiness just around Bangkok on the holidays, see? Next time Sukjai will introduce you to another great place in Thailand! See ya!
