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.

When visiting Nan Province, it is incredibly wise to book your accommodation in advance if your preference is to stay in a Nan, Thailand hostel, as there are only a couple hostels in the entire province. However, if you aren't set on staying in a hostel in Nan, Thailand, there a quite a few guest houses, homestays, hotels, and resorts in the province that vary drastically in price to suit your accommodation needs. 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.

The number of tourist attractions in Nan have grown and become more glorified as of late, and they include a number of different opportunities for travelers to experience while visiting. These include (but are certainly not limited to) the stunningly beautiful Doi Samer Dao, which is known for its amazing sunsets; Wat Phumin, which features one of Thailand's most celebrated art galleries; the historical religious site of Wat Phaya Wat; Si Nan National Park, with all of its serene beauty; and much more, including the exquisite local culture of which they are so proud.
