Introduction to Uthai Thani Travel Guide

Uthai Thani is a small province in Thailand’s lower northern region, surrounded by beautiful mountains, a diversified ethnic population, and fine culture. Nearby provinces include Nakhon Sawan, Chai Nat, Suphan Buri, Kanchanaburi, and Tak.

According to an old legend, during the prosperous Sukhothai period, Tao Maha Phrom came to create the city at Ban Uthai Kao, which is now Nong Chang District, and bring the Thai people to live alongside the Mon and Karen people. The territory was known as ‘Mueang U Thai.’ Later, the territory became a part of the Ayutthaya kingdom. Uthai Thani joined Monthon Nakhon Sawan in 1898, which eventually became an independent province in 1933.

A ride along the Sakae Krang River is the classiest way to uncover Uthai Thani’s genuine character. The boat ride transports guests back in time to when Thailand’s riverside culture was flourishing. The ease of life on the river, among clusters of rafts and floating homes, will surprise any visitor.
