Ringed by high mountains, the small but prosperous provincial capital of NAN rests on the grassy west bank of the Nan river. This stretch of water really comes alive during the Lanna boat races, usually held in late October or early November, when villages from around the province send teams of up to fifty oarsmen here to race in long, colourfully decorated canoes with dragon prows. The lush surrounding valley is noted for its cotton-weaving, sweet oranges and the attractive grainy paper made from the bark of local sa (mulberry) trees.
Despite being a small town with few visitors, Nan has some attractive accommodation options, ranging from family-run guest houses to clean, reasonably priced hotels.
