Nakhon Si Thammarat

With one of the most significant temples in the kingdom, the historic city of Nakhon Si Thammarat (usually shortened to ‘Nakhon’) is a natural and rewarding stop between Hat Yai and Surat Thani.

Hundreds of years ago, an overland route between the western port of Trang and the eastern port of Nakhon Si Thammarat functioned as a major trade link between Thailand and the rest of the world. This ancient influx of cosmopolitan conceits is still evident today in the local cuisine, and housed in the city’s temples and museums.
