Phichit Province Travel Guide
Dating back as a community in the Sukhothai period, modern day Phichit is known as the ‘land of crocodiles’ due to the quantity of fresh-water reptiles which thrive in the two rivers, Yom and Nan, which flow through the region. The several crocodile farms draw both local visitors and those from abroad.
A number of tranquil places to relax have also served to make Phichit provincial capital a somewhat popular destination. The Old City Park, about four miles outside of town, is thought to be the site of Phichit town 900 years in the past. It is a favorite for those seeking a quiet, peaceful place to pass the day. In addition to an arboretum, visitors can view the sculptures Ko Si Mala and Tham Chalawan.
