Land of Smiles
Offering a rich culinary heritage, sun-kissed beaches, exotic culture, tropical climate, and stunning landscapes, a Thailand vacation remains one of the world's greatest magnets for curious travelers. In between the busy and crowded cities, the Asian nation features a quiet countryside: a blend of lush rice paddies, flourishing tropical forests, and tiny villages living according to an age-old agricultural clock that continues to play a major role in the locals' lifestyle. A tour of Thailand reveals a deep devotion to Buddhism, exemplified by eye-catching temples lavishly decorated with golden Buddha statues, simple shrines, and lively religious festivals celebrated throughout the country.

Ruins · Sacred & Religious Sites · Landmarks
Phitsanulok Province lies between the Khwae Noi and Nan rivers. Most of the region consists of a flat river basin, but mountains cover roughly a third of it towards the north and east. The mountains shelter four national parks, home to thick forest, cascading waterfalls, and all sorts of rare and endangered wildlife. Outside of nature tourism, Phitsanulok Province boasts renowned Buddhist temples, archeological remains between 2,000 to 4,000 years old, and numerous other palaces, ruins, and historical sites. Traditional woven fabrics, produced throughout the region, make a popular souvenir.
