Nakhon Si Thammarat is one of the most ancient cities of Thailand and contains many buildings and ruins of historical significance and many Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu temples.
It’s fair to say it’s not the prettiest of places and you wont see that many travellers stopping here. If you would like to see the lives of real Thai people and not just the tourist areas then it’s worth considering a stop over.
Nakhon Si Thammarat boasts many undeveloped beaches and two national parks with stunning waterfalls and exotic wildlife.
Due to less tourism, there has been no development of luxury resorts in Nakhon Si Thammarat. There are plenty of mid range and budget hotels in this area. These offer great value for money.
