PHITSANULOK

Untouched Natural Beauty

Phitsanulok sits between the Nan and Khwae Noi Rivers, surrounded by Thailand’s central plains, northern mountains, and northeastern plateau. An ideal venue for business travelers or meeting planners, Phitsanulok features excellent MICE infrastructure and is, in many ways, similar to Khon Kaen and Ubon Ratchatani: Phitsanulok is a hub for trade, investment, and logistics connecting Bangkok, Northern Thailand, and greater IndoChina. Of specific note: the Topland Hotel & Convention Centre offers seven function rooms and can cater for up to 1,000 reception guests. For pre-or post-meeting sightseeing excursions, nearby natural, cultural, and historical attractions include spectacular national parks with numerous waterfalls.
