Phitsanulok

Phitsanulok, The riverside provincial capital is 377 kilometers north of Bangkok. Phitsanulok is situated on the geographical and administrative line uniting the central and northern regions.

Phitsanulok was the birthplace of King Naresuan the Great of Ayutthaya (reign: 1590-1605), and his brother Prince Ekathasarot. Phitsanulok has long been an important center for political and strategic reasons. Phitsanulok was a major center of recruitment when Ayutthaya waged war with Burma (Myanmar), and was the capital of Thailand for 25 years during the 1448-1488 reign of Ayutthaya’s King Boromatrailokanat.

Phetchaburi has long been renowed for the excellence of its Thai-style sweets that include subtle custards and egg-based confectionery. Several specialty sweet shops are located at the foot of Khao Wang on the northern outskirts of the provincial capital.
