Lan Sak Travel Guide

Situated in the north of Thailand in Uthai Thani Province, the sleepy village of Lan Sak doesn’t receive much attention from visitors and it will be obvious why as soon as you set foot here.

Although this area is peaceful and charming in its own way, there is very little to do either in the village itself or in the surrounding area. However, this could be a good place for those who want to escape from the slightly phony feel of Thailand’s tourist areas and experience the traditional Thai way of life.

Lan Sak is significantly cooler than many parts of Thailand so this is a good place to retreat from the heat during the scorching hot summer months. Grab a drink and a cheap local meal from a street side stall and indulge in a spot of people watching.

Getting There & Away

Lan Sak is rather difficult to get to. There are regular buses to Uthai Thani from all over Thailand and there are small local buses or minivans running from Uthai Thani to Lan Sak. From Bangkok the journey takes around 3 to 4 hours.
