About Phitsanulok

Phitsanulok is a relatively large city with around 70,000 permanent residents located in the Northern Region of Thailand about halfway between Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Phitsanulok itself is not particularly popular as a tourist destination, particularly for foreign visitors. Much of the city centre features fairly ugly concrete buildings.

Phitsanulok is a very old city a lot of which was destroyed in a fire in 1957. Much of what replaced the original flammable wooden buildings was not very attractive. One part of the city which did survive the fire relatively unscathed is the magnificent Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat. Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat is a large 14th Century temple that houses what is generally considered the most beautiful statue of the Lord Buddha in Thailand. The majority of the tourists who come to Phitsanulok do so to visit Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat in order to see the statue.

The other major reason why tourists come to Phitsanulok is that it is the closest railway station to Sukhothai, and its fantastic UNESCO recognised historical park. Bus services to Sukhothai depart from Phitsanulok Bus Terminal 1, which is a city centre bus station just over 2 km from Phitsanulok Railway Station. Tuk-tuks wait for passengers outside Phitsanulok Railway Station and the fare to Phitsanulok Bus Terminal 1 should be no more than 60 THB. Bus services from Phitsanulok to Sukhothai depart every hour and take around 60 minutes to reach Sukhothai Bus Terminal.
