Nakhon Sawan นครสวรรค์ is a town in Central Thailand. It is the provincial capital for Nakhon Sawan province. Nakhon Sawan has a population of close to 100,000 people. It covers an area that includes Pak Ham Pho and parts of Khwae Yai, Nakhon Sawan Tok, Nakhon Sawan Ok and Wat Sai.

Nakhon Sawan is located 250 kilometers (160 miles) to the north of Bangkok. This is the place where the Ping River and Nan River converge to form the Chao Phraya River. Its location in a valley causes Nakhon Sawan to have one of the highest difference between daytime and night time temperature. To the east of Nakhon Sawan is Bueng Boraphet, the biggest freshwater wetland in Thailand.
