  • A free museum, run by a wonderful family and a great way to learn the traditional living conditions of the nobility back in the day. It is a beautiful teak house.
  • Historic local house with original pieces of wood. Trying to decorate ground floor with commercial goods but they are not matched with the house. Those on second floor are fantastic.
  • Nice old northern style house with the age of 198 years. It's one of the Nan city trolley tour stops
  • Beautiful building and a really nice tour stop showing ways of the past
  • The place is called House of Chao Fongkham, commonly referred to as Nan Noble House. It's actually a teak house of around 150 years of age and built in a classic Northern Thai style. The late Chao Fongkham was a descendant of Chao Anantaworarithidej, the 62nd Lord of Nan and the father of the last two Lords. It's interesting to walk around the house to see different rooms (living/ bedroom/ kitchen) which exhibit the good old ways of life. Besides, there's this small museum displaying antique and silverware to browse further. For those interested in local handicrafts and woven fabrics, do visit the basement area. There are looms on display, usually with demonstration on how to weave a famous fabric - the Lai Nam Lai (ผ้าลายน้ำไหล).

Where to stay in Nan

You'll be hard pressed to find five-star accommodations in Nan, but the city does offer plenty of cozy budget choices. Hostels and guesthouses cater to backpackers with basic rooms and dorm-style lodgings, while hotels offer amenities like hot water, air conditioning, and Wi-Fi. If you prefer to splurge on your Nan trip, look for resorts located on the outskirts and in the city center, but do not expect the luxurious treatment offered by the larger centers.
