this is histrorical and natural city. they have story about the king who fight to get our country back from Myanmar.
this city have the most beautiful Bhudha image of Thailand.if you like outdoor adventure.out of city they have big natural park and you can do rafting in river.
As I mentioned before, Phitsanulok was a rest location on a long drive - and it was ideal for this. I cannot comment on the finer details of the city as I did not explore enough to be any sort of authority.
One drive into the centre of town proved to be a bad move because of very heavy traffic and jams. I do not know what the cause of this traffic was.
Its a typical Thai small town - don't expect too much tourist business - ask locals for the good restaurants -
I only stayed one night, and one more night would not have been enough, so i guess about 3 days should do it, though you use this as a base to visit nearby provinces.
Very pleasant town. I'd like to visit again.
Good location in the middle of Thailand. Easy to drive from Bangkok or Chiangmai only 4 hr. There are many natural places which are good for eco tourism, biking or brown water rafting.
We also can drive from Phitsanulok to Lao or Vietnam or Myanmar or China from Indochina intersection in Phitsanulok.
Not far from Bangkok, easy to get there by plane, train or bus. It will take about 4-5 hours drive. Very attractive city with culture and history.
Variety with historical museum, rafting, big Bhudda in the old Thai temple which is the most beautiful of Bhudda in Thailand
the small province but fillfull by culture, history, and nice local people. if you are interesting with religion and history, please try to here.
Many people seem to use Phitsanulok as a stepping stone to Sukhothai, and I think it deserves more time for exploration.
The temples in the area are quite a sight to see, with some from the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya period. Besides that, there's some lovely national parks with gorgeous flora and fauna aplenty. Nice to trek around, with lovely waterfalls at the end. Apparently there are areas where you can actually stay the night, and I'll be trying that the next time I'm there!
NICE people and Good and centre city to the north and and BKK and northernEast , historical Place NIce to stay and relax
The city was nice and easy going , The food was great and delicious .The big temple was very beautyful.
Phitsanulok is a large bustling city of almost 1 million people and should be visited at Water Festival time in April.
There are many beautiful Temples in the city and 5 large shopping malls and city markets with fine foods which are frequented by the locals. The Chinese Temple on the mountain is a good attraction as is the waterfalls about 30 km from the city.
Good stop over point after the train from chaing mai, finish journey by plane to Bangkok , night bizarre on the river was disappointing but it was raining There is an acute lack of tuk tuk's the only ones we could get we're around the rail station
good province , nice place about old city and have nice place for shopping mall , transportation very good have airport , local bus , tuk tuk , and have beautiful moutain , waterfall and natural place for relax
I don't know if there is anything to do there. But it's a great place to stop if driving from one part of Thailand to the other.
Phitsanulok is a friendly city. It has a good night life as well it has good markets. The river runs through the middle of the city and is fun to explore the riverside.
I look forward to returning to this city.
Fly from Bangkok and start a tour of Northern Thailand from this point.You may wish to hire transport from here.
While here visit the old capitol of SUKHOTHAI, with its monuments and parks.
Phitsanulok is a typical Thai country town where people are going about their daily business and making the most of what they have.
There are many small shops that can provide all of your needs and two medium sized shopping malls that have heaps of variety shops plus movie theatres and a small bowling alley. Phitsanulok is not a place you would visit for shoppping alone, it is after all a country town, if it is shopping you are after then Bangkok can not be beaten!
People are nice !!! I think this is enough for the review cause with great people you'll have great journey
good place. But the Hotel is not inside the main city, but better to stop over fro those traveler with vehicle or motorbike.
I found a very good Big Bike Repair Shop, which could help me with my bike problems to my very full satisfaction
Phitsanulok is a big city on the North of Thailand. The attractive thing for tourists is the very very beautiful and famous Budha image called Chinnaraj.
Nice city and close to sukothai. The problem is you have to see a few taxi . You have to call taxi by calling call centre .
But taxi are much cheaper than bangkok. The taxi driver are honest.
College town with alot of younbg thai people. Check out the nightbazaar. Go dining and order the local speciality of pak boong fai daeng.
