Tak town itself holds little of interest to most foreign visitors. The town is, however, well known in Thailand for its fruit, vegetables and unique cuisine and the adventurous visitor will be rewarded for exploring the city centre food stall to find unusual noodle dishes and miang kham, which is an old fashioned snack of herbs, shredded coconut, peanuts and other ingredients wrapped in an edible leaf. The town’s major tourist attractions are the Taksin Maharat Shrine, which is a shrine to first king of Thailand following the fall of Ayutthaya in the 18th Century, and Ban Chin Alley, which is a narrow 500 metre long street which is home to an old community of Chinese immigrants and lined with historic wooden building.
