Nakhon Pathom through the local's lens: TakeMeTour's Review

Just an hour’s ride from Bangkok, Nakhon Pathom is a classic go-to city for both locals and travelers who seek a slower pace of life and tons of local vibes, yet don’t want to leave Bangkok.

Find local-recommended things to do in Nakhon Pathom here. 

Wat Phra Pathom Chedi

Home to Thailand’s biggest stupa, a huge Reclining Buddha and the ashes of the Buddha, the temple has been a spiritual hub for the locals for close to two hundred years. If you’re thinking to skip Wat Phra Pathom Chedi because it’s just another temple, rest assured that it’s worth your time. The area around this huge temple is teeming with classic wooden houses, delicious local restaurants and street stalls - a feast to both the eyes and the belly.

Don Wai Market

Food lovers, this is your true paradise. This extensive and lively local market has all things local from fresh vegetables, tropical fruits, old-school Thai desserts and delicious and rare Thai dishes. Another highlight is you can opt for a fun boat ride here, as Don Wai Market is located on the bank of Ta Chin river.

Human Imagery Museum

History buffs will most likely enjoy a walk through centuries of Thai history at the Human Imagery Museum. The realistic and refined beeswax sculptures of former Thai kings, as well as life in the old days including traditions and the slavery practice in Thailand are a great window into the country’s complex history.

Lam Phaya Floating Market

If you are looking for a genuine floating market experience, and not the crowded and more famous ones, Lam Phaya is the answer. Although smaller and much less busy, the floating market has done an amazing job at keeping its authenticity intact. You can buy cheap and fresh produce and drool-worthy dishes from the real locals in their classic paddle boats while taking in the peaceful vibes of the river.
