“Chumsaeng”, a small district in #NakhonSawan, a province in Central Thailand, is a location for a famous TV Series #KrongKam (Cage of Karma). In the past, Chumsaeng is a lively commercial community by Nan river as it was the centre of transportation, both via waterway and railway. Later, when roads were built, waterway and railway transportations became less popular, so was the community. Nowadays, this is a local community where visitors can learn about the past and experience slow life.
