  It is a small city in the north of Thailand, it is a transit point between Chiangmai and Bangkok. It grew around the Nan river. It is quite a historical place of reverence for the Thais. This was where King Naresuan the great was born. It is mostly agricultural. Naresuan university is in Phitsanulok. It is a nice university with plenty of courses for international students at the undergraduate level. The town has many attractions, the best part is that it is less touristy than Chiangmai and Bangkok, so you get to see the real Thai way of life. There is a Tesco lotus extra, Central plaza and the Big C mall which are like the standard malls anywhere in Thailand. It has an immigration office as well.
