Nan, Thailand, is one of the oldest and -- up until a few years ago -- most often forgotten provinces, located at the northeastern tip of Thailand, bordering the beautiful nation of Laos. Geographically, Nan is surrounded by vast swathes of forests and breathtaking mountains, including the enormous mountain of Phu Khe and is renowned for its natural beauty. Like much of Northern Thaiand, Nan owns a tropical climate with a powerful monsoon season running from roughly May to October.

The nightlife in Nan is not nearly as crazy as that of Phuket, Bangkok, or Chiang Mai, but it still offers a number of popular pubs and bars for those seeking a wild night out on the town. Getting around is most convenient with a motorbike rental; however, if that's not your thing, you can use the local transportation, travel by tuk tuk, or find a bicycle on which to ride around and enjoy your surroundings at your own pace.
