About Travel to Nakhon Lampang
Lampang, also known as Nakhon Lampang, is a sizeable city with a population of around 250,000 permanent residents. Lampang is generally overlooked as a tourist destination in favour of the larger and better known city of Chiang Mai, which is just over 100 km to the north of Lampang. Lampang is an historically important city. Established in the 7th Century, the city has been under the control of several different regional powers, including the Khmer Empire, the Lanna Kingdom, the Pagan Empire of Burma, before finally being assimilated into the Thai state.
Lots of different cultures left their mark on the city, most prominently the Burmese whose architectural influence is evident in the magnificent Baan Sao Nak, a well preserved 19th Century teak mansion open to the public, and the distinctive Burmese style mondop at Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao. Wat Phra Kaew Don Tao is also famous for housing the Emerald Buddha, Thailand’s most important statue of the Lord Buddha, during the 15th Century. The most famous Lampang Temple, however, is Wat Phra That Lampang Luang located 15 km to the south east of the Lampang city centre.
Most visitors to Lampang stay in the area around the Tip Chang and Talad Gao Roads. These are the two roads with the best accommodation and a good range of restaurants serving both Thai and International cuisines. The weekend evening market on the Talat Gao Road is also popular, particularly with Thai tourists. This part of Lampang features lots of old wooden houses and the market has lots of stalls selling old fashioned Thai foods and drinks.
Just to the north of the Talad Gao and Tip Chang Roads is the Wang River, which splits the city of Lampang in two. The Northern half of Lampang on the other side of the Wang River is where the old wooden mansion houses are located, along with the city’s older temples. A popular option is to tour the Northern half of the city in a horse and cart, which is a form of transport that is still common in Lampang although largely for tourists.
