Thailand is commonly referred to as the Land of Smiles. It is true. Thai people are friendly, accommodating and the food is GREAT! Throughout Thailand there are village/local markets with native foods, clothes and other interesting indigenous products. Shopping in Bangkok is equivalent to the greatest cities in the world. Nakhon Sawan is a medium sized city in the central part of Thailand with easy access to the northern mountain region, ancient archeological sites and UNESCO World Heritage Parks. It is often described as a classic Thai community with traditional cultural values. Few tourists visit Nakhon Sawan providing an authentic cultural experience.
