Phichit Province is the origin of a famous Krai Thong (Crocodile Conqueror) folktale. As another ancient city of Thailand, Phichit is charming with its historical sites dating back to the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya periods.
Phichit is located on the bank of the Nan River in the lower part of Northern Thailand, standing between Nakhon Sawan and Phitsanulok Provinces, with two rivers running through the city, which are the Nan River and the Yom River.
