General info

floating Uthai Thani was my mother’s hometown and since 2014 my hometown. It is a province in the lower North of Thailand. Uthai Thani does not see many tourists. There’s a few passing through sometimes, mostly cycling, because Uthai Thani offers many beautiful sights. I’ve seen people backpacking in Uthai Thani and that makes sence to me.

There are not a lot of Hotels around here but there are a few budget friendly resorts which are clean and cute.

Uthai Thani attractions mostly Thai tourists. Wat tha sung is very popular among Thai people. Uthai Thani is the most famous for Tak Bat Devo, a celebration after the end of Lent when all the monks descend from the stairs of Wat Sangkat Rattana Khiri.

When you’d ask me to describe Uthai Thani. I’d have to say it’s an authentic, unsoiled, quiet, beautiful piece of Thailand. The people are sincerely friendly, they are not doing it so you’d spend money. They like it that farangs show interest in their town and how they live. They are proud of their of the authentic way of living, their habits and their town. For example their market is still an authentic fresh market, where salesman and saleswoman sell their fresh food everyday. There is no grocery store, and there is no need for it.
