the lower North of Thailand. Prominent landmarks include Sila Asna

bedstead, the mystical legend of Mueang Laplae, sweet langsat, and

birthplace of the valiant and patriotic hero Phraya Phichai Dap Hak,

Uttaradit has a long history, proven by discovery of artefacts, dating

back to pre-historic times, down to the Ayutthaya and Thon Buri

periods. Mueang Phichai and Sawangkhaburi were Ayutthaya’s most

strategic outposts. The site of the original town, then called Bang Pho

Tha It, which was Mueang Phichai’s dependency, was located on the

right bank of the Nan River. It flourished as a port for goods

transportation. As a result, King Rama V elevated its status from Tambon

or sub-district into Mueangor town but was still under Mueang Phichai.

King Rama V re-named it Uttaradit, literally the Port of the North. Later

Uttaradit became more prosperous, and its status was elevated once

again into a province. The town of Phichai became just a district under
