Nurtured and lying between the Nan and Yom Rivers, 344 km to the north of Bangkok, Phichit is the agriculturally fertile land widely famous for its freshwater crocodiles. It’s also well-known all over the world for fruit. It’s the major fruit producer in the region with various kinds as pomelo, krathon, jackfruit, Maprang fruits and Makham Kaeo, a sweet tamarind. In addition, this is home of traditional ancient boat racing which contains hundreds of competitors paddling along the river. This regatta is held annually on the Nan River. The colorful hand-woven fabric is another characteristic of the region.

Phichit was ancient town dating back nearly a thousand years ago, probably was built by Phraya Khot Thabong in 1058. The community was firstly named Sra Luang during the Sukhothai period (1238 – 1350) and during the reign of King Rama V (1868-1910), it was designated into a Thai province.

Although being a basically agricultural area, Phichit features a large number of attractions, chiefly related to the natural beauty and history & culture of the region. Bueng Si Fai, the large freshwater lake for breeding crocodiles, is the main tourist attraction in here. This is a hitorical and cultural place with Utthay Mueang Kao Pichit ancient town situated on the banks of the Nan River and Taphan Hin with 34m-high golden image of Lord Buddha, the most prominent sight.
