Nan (น่าน) is a town in the remote valley of the Nan River in the Northern River Valleys region of Northern Thailand, bordering Laos. The area is heavily forested with arable land used mainly for agriculture. It is an ancient city steeped in history with its long association with the Lanna Thai culture and the Sukhothai kingdom.
Not many tourists visit Nan, but of those that do 97% are Thai. Nan is an excellent spot to visit for an authentic Thai experience; but be warned, English is almost impossible to come by so get your google translate ready to go.
