About 668 kilometers from Bangkok, it covers an area of 11,472 square kilometers and is made up of the following districts (Amphoe) and sub-district (King Amphoe). Introduction Amphoe Muang, Wiang Sa, Pua, Chiang Klang, Tha Wang Pha, Thung Chang, Mae Charim, Ban Luang, Na Noi, Na Muen, Santisuk, Bo Klua, Chalerm Phrakiat , Song Khaeo and King Amphoe Phu Phiang. Nan's history is deeply involved with its neighbors, in particular Sukhothai which played an important role in both political and religious terms. Today Nan is still the home of numerous Thai Lue and other hilltribes who retain highly interesting customs and traditions.

Once the center of the center of the old town, it was moved to its present location in about 1368. It features a 55 m. high golden chedi containing a Holy Relic from Sukhothai. Over the Viharn's door frames and on parts of the roofs are plaster designs in the shape of Naga, the great serpent, which represent the artistic best in local archicture.
Sao Din or Hom ChomSao Din or Hom Chom is a natural geological occurence located about 10 kms from Na Noi district on Highway # 1083. The site is characterized by a large earthen mould eroded by the elements through the ages, leaving only hard eartern columns, whose exotic shapes and forms can be interpreted as differently as the imagination goes.




Si Nan National Park
The Si Nan National Park covers extensive forested and mountainous areas. Pha Chu is the major attraction in the park. The cliff can be reached by taking the Nan-Wiang Sa - Na Noi route for 135 kilometres, then turning into Highway No. 1083 and on for another 22 kilometres. The cliff-stop offers an excellent viewing point to enjoy a panoramic vista of the mountains. A national flag pole has a lanyard running all the way down to the foot of the hill, the longest in the country. There are camping areas for visitors in the park.
