It is spread along the Nan river's right bank. The area is heavily forested with arable land used mainly for agriculture. It is an ancient city steeped in history with its long association with the Lannathai culture and the Sukhothai kingdom.

Nan is a small city, primarily devoted to commercial, administrative, educational, and hospital activities.
