Nakhon Sawan

Nakhon Sawan has existed since before the

Sukhothai era. The name of this city appears in

Sukhothai’s stone inscription and it was called

“Phra Bang city” which was an important frontier

city for the wars. It later changed to Chon Tawan

city and finally to Nakhon Sawan, but normally it

was called “Pak Nam Pho city”. Historically, there

is some archaeological evidence that indicated

that Nakhon Sawan used to be an agricultural

city since the beginning of the historical era,

as a center of transportation and a location for

Chinese traders.

Nakhon Sawan is located between the Central

and Northern regions. The province, therefore,

serves as a ‘gateway to the Northern region,’

as well as an important transportation center

of the lower Northern region. It is also a place

where four main rivers; namely Ping, Wang,

Yom, and Nan, converge. The convergence has

become an origin of the country’s great river,

the Chao Phraya River. Furthermore, Thailand’s

largest freshwater lake or Bueng Boraphet is

located here. Bueng Boraphet is abundant with

species of plants and birds, and it provides a

habitat for a hundred species of fish, for being a

rich source of food. The province covers an area

of around 9,597 square kilometers.
