Wat Phra That Kao Noi

An iconic viewpoint

Photo of Wat Phra That Kao Noi, , Nan

What we say: 4 stars

Overlooking the downtown area and it’s surrounds, this towering Buddha statue and accompanying view has become rather iconic, and you will see the image in many tourism-related materials about Nan. There is also a token temple on site, but aside from a pleasant and rather large Buddha image inside, there is really not much to it.

For the best shots, come during sunrise, as the viewpoint faces East overlooking the city. The lighting is also excellent as the sun begins to set, casting a lovely orange glow over the valley below.

A few kilometres west of town
How to get there: Heading South from the Bus Station on route 101, turn right on to the first road you come to. The road is well signposted, and leads directly to the temple
