About Travel to Phitsanulok
Phitsanulok is one of the oldest cities in Thailand and closely associated with one of Thailand’s most important historical figures, King Naresuan, who was born in the city. Unfortunately, much of the city burnt down in a fire in 1957 and the modern city that developed following the fire is notably unattractive featuring lots of characterless concrete buildings.
Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat in Phitsanulok
Phitsanulok doesn’t receive many foreign visitors but is a popular destination for Thai tourists who come the city to visit Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat.
