🌿 Top 20 Check-in points in Phrae-Nan
💕As seasons change, everything also changes - save for the beauty of nature that always remain with us.
⭐️Just like these two Northern provinces. No matter how many times I visit, I never get bored
📍Today, I present you a compiled list of 20 check-in points in Prae and Nan provinces.
🚗For those who will travel there as the next destination, I assure you that you will experience the magic of these two provinces.
🌈These two provinces are right next to each other, and 3 days and 2 nights are enough to explore them. You can take a quick flight to Nan, or if you want to take it slowly, going by bus is also a good choice.
💰Most importantly, the budget wasn't that high! Around 2000 baht is enough for 3 days. The food price in this province is very nice; noodles still cost 25 per bowl! There is a lot of local dishes to choose from. In the market, you can talk to local villagers and have a good time!
🌳Most tourist attractions are in nature. In the rainy season like this, there is more greenery than usual. In the morning, you will be greeted with the fog, rain in the afternoon and cool weather at night.
