The main town itself, is quite big and the standared Thai regional town, not very atractive, although Sawan Park is quite nice, the best hotel in town is the Piman Hotel, which also has the D'n"D Disco, which is'nt bad. I've never been out there in the night much as it's about 70 km away. There is a big "Big C" shopping center and an older one in the center called "Fairy Land" and a Macro just outside town so you can get most shopping stuff.

Is your GF family actually from the town, as Nakon Sawan is quite a big provence, if you will be staying somewhere else I'll try and give you a bit more info on that, but I'm not online much now :o

Hope that helps cheers RC

Harmonica,

I'm with you...my brother-in-law works at the hotel close ECC in Nakhonsawan so there's a good chance I'll end up there as well. (The town, not the hotel :o ) Just got to figure out when I'm going to take the plunge. When are you headed there ?

Hi, I live here in Nakhon Sawan too. By the way one of the stores here is called Makro, not macro, hehehehehehhee.

Also there is a lot of foreigners staying and living here believe it or not. I see them quite common at the Big C store every time I go there especially during the weekend.

ONLY ONE THING TO WARN YOU ABOUT HERE--------> BEWARE OF THE MOTORCYCLE DRIVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been here a year now, and got hit by them 5 FRICKIN TIMES. Some have hit me from behind, some on the side of the car as they ride along, and some have even smacked me on my drivers side as I turn right.

They are a nightmare. They don't look where they are going and they simply assume that you are not there and even act like they own the entire road.

Times to avoid driving 7:30 to 8:30 AM in the morning and 4:30 to 5:30 in the evening. ITS RUSH HOUR AND PURE NONSENSE.

Other than that, a nice place to live. People here mind their own business, and pretty much leave you alone.

They have a SUPER GREAT TOURIST POLICE OFFICE HERE, and they are very nice when giving any help if you need it. Ask for Paul, and he is an Aussie and can speak multi languages. In fact he is a friend of mine here.

Oh you can buy cars here pretty decent too. Price very afforable. However be wary of the automotive repair shops, cause they are shaky at best.

The Tire shop (Shell) at Makro does a good job. Very courteous, and they do more than you ask or expect. I give them thumbs up and the tires priced at their promotions is really worth its money in gold.

As of the airport Duh??????? what can land on a 4,000 foot runway??? no terminal and no one on duty at the tower. :o:D

They have a train station here and a major Bus Terminal Station here.

The owner of the best Hotel here happens to be the Governor by the way.

I stayed there one night a few years ago. I went to buy old Thai Teak houses and made quite good money out of it.

If anyone wants to get into the business of finding them, photographing them and sending me pics & prices, I would be happy to give you some business. Im looking for a couple now as it happens. Nice little earner for someone. Let me know.
