Old City Wall & Moat in Nan

Old City Wall in Nan - Thailand

Nan is an old town that in the centuries passing has been moved a few times. Besides old temples you can see in Nan town the "remains" of the old "Clay City Wall" and what was once build on-top of that a "City Wall" of small red bricks (constructed in 1855). And on the outside of the city wall was a "City Moat". Although big parts were still intact begin 1900, there is not much left of it and I assume that what you can see nowadays is not much original. As far as I understand even until late 1970's parts of the old wall have been destroyed. Nowadays there is a part of about 1000m long with a kind of park along it. This photo was taken at the east-side of the wall. At the corner of the west-side has probably been an fort. In the evening people do sell food there.

When to go to the Old City Wall?
