Situated by the coast with surrounding mountains, Nakhon, in short, is one of the most ancient cities at the south of Thailand. Steeped in history and pride, this quaint city boasts many Muslim mosques and Buddhist and Hindu temples. The beautiful town is noted for its niellowork in silver (mostly found on Tha Chang Road), beautiful beaches and natural wonders. For craft lovers, a visit to the Fan Making Village is a must, as the friendly villagers here spend their spare time to make Kapho fans sold throughout the country. Another must-see is the famous Khao Luang National Park, a vast forest recognised for its mountain trekking and forest walks, calm streams, beautiful waterfalls and natural fruit orchards. Want to spot pink dolphins? Head on over to Ao Khanom, where you can also start your idyllic wanderings in the 'Thailand of the past' or climb up Dat Fa Mountain for resplendent views.
