Best time to visit

The climate of most of Thailand is governed by three seasons: rainy (roughly May–Oct), caused by the southwest monsoon dumping moisture gathered from the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand; cool (Nov–Feb); and hot (March–May).

Overall, the cool season is the best time to visit Thailand in general and Nakhon Sawan in particular. Bear in mind, however, that it’s also the busiest season, so forward planning is essential.

Nakhon Sawan’s current weather and 7-day forecast

NAKHON SAWAN WEATHER

Wat Chom Khiri Nak Phrot 

This monastery is located outside of the city just before Dejativong Bridge. It is situated on a low hillock on the left of Phahonyothin Road. From the heights, one can view the scenic Chao Phraya River as well as Dejativong Bridge, the first bridge to span the Chao Phraya River, and another newly built bridge. This monastery houses the Buddha's footprints where annual celebrations take place every 12th lunar month. In addition there is a pavillion named Sala "Thevada Sang" said to be built by angels for its seemingly unlimited capacity.

Khao Woranat Banphot (Khao Kop) 

This mountain is located behind Paknam Pho City, with a wide courtyard and beautiful flower gardens. It is a popular afternoon rest spot for the city folks. Legend has it that the mountain - top monastery was built in the Reign of King Lithai of Sukhothai over 700 years ago. There is, in addition to pagoda, a Vihara housing the Buddha Footprints. From the mountain - top, one can view the beautiful scenery of Paknam Pho City, Bung Boraphet - swamp in the Northeast and a large jungle in the west where mountain ranges appear strung out along the horizon.

Utthayan Sawan 

A large public park in an area of 314 rai, is located in the central part of the city. With a small island in the middle of the small lake, the park provides all necessary facilities for recreational purposes for the locals as well as for the tourists.

Bung Boraphet 

Depending on the water lever, it can be a small sized lake, or a large sized swamp, occupying a vast area of approximately 140,000 rai. It is the largest aquaculture source of fresh water fish in Thailand. There is a museum and aquarium with many species of fresh water fish. Travel to Bung Boraphet may be arranged by car, a trip of about 9 kms. on Nakhon Sawan - Chum Saeng Road, while a boat from the landing behind the City Market takes about half an hour.
To the south of Bung Boraphet,16 kms. along Nakhon Sawan Tha Tako Road, there is Bung Boraphet Widlife Sanctuary or Waterfowls Park. The park is designed for recreation, abundant in wild animals and birds of different kinds.

The Source of Maenam Chao Phraya 

This is a junction of Maenam Ping and Maenam Nan at Tambon Pak Nam Pho. The waters of the Ping flow reddish while those of the Nan flow greenish, as visible from behind a market within the provincial city of Nakhon Sawan, and when met become the source of Chao Phraya, the most important river of Thailand.

Dragon and Lion Procession 

Each Chinese New Year, thousands of Thai and Chinese people from several provinces flock into Nakhon Sawan to celebrate and view the procession, an annual event since 1914. The procession falls on the 4th waxing day of the Chinese 1st lunar month which usually falls around the end of January or early February of every year. This ceremony of Nakhon Sawan is organised in a more grandiose manner than those of other provinces in the country. The colorful and noisy procession includes, among other things, traditional Cantonese Singhtoh (i.e. Lions), Dwarf Lion, Hainanese style Lion, Engkaw, Lorkoh the clamorous symbol - like and a Taychew musical parade, followed by a long file of hundreds of beautiful young maidens. During the festival, however, all hotels of Nakhon Sawan are fully-booked, and the revellers celebrate day and night, as they do at Chiang Mai's Songkran Festival.

International travelers to Thailand will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or ATK test results from October 1st, 2022 onward.

In a new move to attract travelers during peak season, Thailand is doing away with the requirement of needing vaccination certificates or Covid-19 negative results in the case of unvaccinated passengers. Additionally, those infected with Covid-19, but have mild symptoms don’t need to isolate from next month. The same applies to those who test positive but display no symptoms.

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul announced these changes on Thursday after the National Communicable Diseases Committee (NCDC) had a meeting on Wednesday.

Instead of isolating those who have contracted the disease would be required to wear a mask, socially distance themselves from others and wash their hands frequently for the first five days. They also need to stay away from those who are immunocompromised and vulnerable.

Dr. Sophon Iamsirithaworn, deputy director-general of the Department of Disease Control, informed that since the present Covid-19 mutation doesn’t cause serious symptoms in most people, disease control measures can be relaxed.

National Security Council secretary-general Supoj Malaniyom added that the new measures are being put in place to help improve the economic conditions of the country.

“The primary aim will be to ensure the economy is back on track so people could earn their livelihoods once more,” he said.
