NAKHON SI THAMMARAT

NAKHON SI THAMMARAT

Nakhon Si Thammarat (NST) has long been a center of culture and trade in the south of Thailand. In the past, there was a city-state here called Ligor which was well-known all over Asia because it was a part of a very important trade route connecting the city with Trang on the west coast, which linked trade between the western and eastern worlds. At that time, rice and fruits were main goods while boats were used for transportation.

At that time, rice and fruits were main goods while boats were used for transportation.

In the highlands, people used boats called “North Boats” (ruea nuea) for trading with communities in the coastal area. In the lowlands, people used long - tailed boats. Nakhon Si Thammarat is a charming city worth visiting. 

Apart from having abundant natural attractions such as Khao Luang or Ban Khiri Wong which is a sample of the developed city, Nakhon Si Thammarat is also rich in culture and traditions including folk performances such as Talung and Manohra.
