|UTTARADIT A province in the Lower North, Uttradit has a long history developing through
the years since pre-historic time.
The site of the original town, then called
Bang Pho Tha It, was located on the right bank of the Nan River. It flourished
as a port for goods transportation. As a result, King Rama V elevated its status
into a province and re-named it Uttradit, literally the Port of the North.

square kilometres and is divided into the following districts: Muang, Tron,
