Uttaradit



 


What :

Resting in the Nan River Valley of Northern Thailand, Uttaradit played an important role as a northern shipping port up through the later part of the 20th century. Using the waters of the Nan River to ship the valuable teak wood culled from the area’s forests, the town and province prospered through Burmese incursions and the rise and fall of early Thai kingdoms like Ayutthaya and Sukhothai.

The region’s teak forests, once heavily logged, are making a comeback thanks to the many national parks that protect large swaths of land in the area. Ton Sai Yai Park has the world’s largest teak tree reaching 125 feet into the air, and is well worth a visit on a tour of Thailand. Klong Trong, Lam Nam Nan, and Phu Soi Dao National parks protect hundreds of miles of verdant forests and mountains filled with wildlife and unique plants.


When :

Monsoon rains come between June and October reviving the teak forests’ green luster. The highest temperatures are between March and May, and the best weather to visit is from November to January.


Where :

Uttaradit is the capital of Uttaradit Province in Northern Thailand. Best accessed by private vehicle, the town is a great stop on the road north to Chiang Mai.


Who :

Three national parks filled with diverse wildlife make this a favored destination for trekkers.


Appropriate Attire :

Dress for a hike if you’re heading into the national parks, but if you plan to visit any Buddhist monasteries in the region it’s best to cover shoulders to knees as a sign of modesty while on consecrated ground.

Jason & Cindy Burgess - October 2013

My family and I took a two week long tour of Thailand with Easy Tours of Thailand and the trip truly could not have been any better.

Our guide was very personable, knowledgeable, and her English was excellent. In addition to offering a unique and local perspective throughout the tour, we were completely at ease with her and felt that she truly wanted to make our experience the best it could possibly be.

The private driver and vehicle that was set up for us was also excellent. I knew prior to our trip that it would probably be best to reserve this type of service during our travels, but I had no idea how invaluable this ended up being for us. He maneuvered through crowded streets and unexpected roadblocks with ease, and knew which areas to avoid driving through and efficient alternative routes. To top it off, the vehicle was always very clean, air conditioned, and there were cold drinks waiting for us after visiting a site.

The tour itself was completely tailored to what we wanted to see and what our interests are with assistance from their U.S Sales Office prior to arriving in Bangkok. They provided a day by day itinerary for us which was great, but the best part was having the freedom to change things as needed, or make unexpected stops to explore, as the tour unfolded.

I would definitely use this company again if we go back to Thailand.
