About Travel to Phitsanulok
Phitsanulok is a small city in the lower part of Thailand’s Northern Region. Relatively few foreign visitors come to Phitsanulok, and those that do are often simply passing through as Phitsanulok is where you need to leave the railway network to board a bus to Sukhothai.
Hotel and Restaurants in Phitsanulok
Because very few foreign tourists come to Phitsanulok there are almost no hospitailty businesses in Phitsanulok which cater specifically for foreigners. Phitsanulok is a cheap city in terms of accommodation and food, but what’s available is very much focussed on what Thai travellers want. If you stay overnightin Phitsanulok you will generally stay in a basic but cheap hotel, and more likely than not your evening meal will be purchased from a street side food stall.
For a better standard of accommodation, and some Western food options, we recommended walking 800 metres due North to the Topland Plaza shopping centre and checking into the Topland Hotel. The Topland Hotel is one of the best hotels in Phitsanulok which serves a good buffet breakfast and represents very good value for money. The pricing is about the same as a 3 star hotel in one of the tourist areas of Bangkok.
Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat
Phitsanulok has one major tourist attraction, and it’s a significant one which attracts large numbers of Thai tourists, and that’s Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat. Wat Phra Si Rattana Mahathat is a Buddhist temple founded in 1357. The temple itself has numerous points on interest, including a 36 metre tall Khmer style prang and beautiful decorations. The main point of interest is a 375 cm tall statue of the Lord Budha covered in gold paint called the Phra Phuttha Chinnarat statue.
The Phra Phuttha Chinnarat statue is widely known in Thailand and often considered to be Thailand’s most beautiful statue of the Lord Buddha. The Phra Phuttha Chinnarat statue is unusual in that it depicts the Lord Buddha surrounded by a halo of flames. The depiction of the aureola is highly ornate and delicate. According to local legend it took three atempts to cast the statue before it came out correctly. The shrine hall in which the Phra Phuttha Chinnarat statue is nlocated looks similar a room in a 18th Century European palace complete with chandliers and fresco like wall murals. A lot of effort has gone into the way the statue is presented.
