Nakhon Nayok is a destination that has arguably been taken for granted by many tourists. Located just 106 kilometers from Bangkok, Nakhon Nayok has many attractions that may be visited on day trips. Consequently, Nakhon Nayok is typically visited by day trippers or those making a brief stop over on the way to other destinations. However, Nakhon Nayok features refreshing natural beauty, including waterfalls and parks, renowned historical sites, a number of soft adventure activities, and a variety of delectable fruits.

The northern part of Nakhon Nayok is located in the Dong Phaya Yen mountain range, an area covered by the Khao Yai National Park. Yod Khao Kiew, its highest peak, is 1,292 meters above sea level. In contrast, the central part of the province is a rather flat river plain formed by the Maenam Nakhon Nayok, a river popular with white water rafting enthusiasts.

The provincial seal says a lot about Nakhon Nayok. It features a circle indicating the unity of the people of Nakhon Nayok, an elephant raising an ear of rice that represents the fertile forests where numerous elephants dwell and the ear of rice referring to the fruitful farming in the region, and a pile of straw, a stand of trees, and billowy clouds in the background depicting the natural beauty of the province that includes portions of Khao Yai National Park and contains the Nakhon Nayok River, a popular destination for rafting.

There are many levels of hotels and resorts for you to decide along the way to Nang Rong Waterfall and Wang Ta Krai.
