Holidays To Phitsanulok
If you’re all about that Zen, it’s time to book one of our Phitsanulok holiday packages.

Balance your daily adventures with easygoing outdoor nightlife and skip “tourist trap” vibes at the local street markets.
Things to Do in Phitsanulok
Phitsanulok is the name of one of Thailand’s oldest cities and the surrounding province. At Wotif, we’ll help you make your Phitsanulok holiday as big and bold or as simple and secluded as you want. Be sure to take a break at Phra Si Ratana Temple near the Nan River. Built during the 14th century, this oasis in the city is located within walking distance of a few other temples and the National Museum Buddha, in case you’re curious about all the meditation and art you see around town. Look even closer at the history and traditions of Phitsanulok at the Sgt. Maj. Thawee Folk Museum, located south of the city centre. Add a little adventure to your culture fix and take one of our convenient Phitsanulok car rental options for a drive out to Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park. We told you there would be fresh air—307 square km of fresh air, actually—so breathe easy this holiday.
Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Thanks to the Phitsanulok Night Bazaar, shopping is nightlife—that’s our idea of multi-tasking. The city may be small, but you’ll be able to find a good mix of street food, gifts and local handicrafts and clothing to take home to your friends and family—or to keep all to yourself. Hey, we don’t judge. Located in the city centre right on the Nan River, this hot spot is a great place to cool off with locals after your day hiking through the park.
In this particularly lush area, there’s fresh produce for days, so expect to taste some interesting curry combinations with lychee and longan fruits. It’s OK to make food the centerpiece of your trip. After all, what better way is there to take advantage of sweet Phitsanulok deals than to spend the savings stuffing your face? Be sure you sit down (on the floor) for a historic Khantok dinner, during which you’ll eat an array of curries and noodle dishes to the backdrop of traditional Thai dancing.
The nightlife in Phitsanulok has a vintage feel to it. Near the bazaar you’ll find indie bars that are more rock ‘n’ roll than techno. Along the river in the city centre, the streets stay busy and you can find shenanigans if you go looking, but in general locals keep the same chill factor you’ll experience during the day rolling all night.
Booking one of Wotif’s Phitsanulok packages should be at the top of your holiday to-do list. With history at every curve of the river and eats that can’t be beat, you’re in for a treat—and we’re not just talking about the caramel-covered rice candy. Wanna hit the big city, too?
