Phit Sanulok Sukhothai

  • Phitsanulok Province is located in Lower North Thailand and is historically linked to Sukhothai, Si Satchanalai and Kamphaeng Phet. Visitors to any of these ancient cities should also plan to visit all four of them at the same time. The neighbouring Provinces are Loei, Phetchabun, Phichit, Kamphaeng Phet, Sukhothai and Uttaradit. The Capital City is also called Phitsanulok which is located on the Nan River. The name ' Phitsanulok ' has ancient Hindu routes, as ' Phitsanu ' is derived from the Hindi name ' Visnu ' and a general translation of the modern Thai name means ' Vishnu's Heaven '. Other ancient Thailand place names follow this Hindu tradition, such as, Ayutthaya.
