Add a Point to the Map

Nong Bua Lamphu is a city in Northern Isaan.

Nong Bua Lampu is the country's latest province. Established on December 1, 1993, it is the 76th province of Thailand. Before separation, Nongbua Lampu once was part of Udon Thani. Although the province was just established recently, it has a long history. Archeological artifacts found in this area indicate that there were human settlements in Nong Bua Lampu since in the pre-historical era. About 200 years ago, a town was established by Lao people from the left side of Mekong River. The name Nong Bua Lampu appears in historical records as a rest venue for the Siamese Army during their march to fight against Vientiane in both the Ayuthaya and the Rattanakosin era. Besides picturesque nature, namely the Phu Phan Range, and a beautiful lake, Nong Bua Lampu is rich of cultural attractions, such as archeological sites and interesting local handicrafts.
