Day 1: stop in Chaiyaphum to visit famliy of Mrs. CO:

A BBQ was planned for the evening, of course we had to buy some seafood in Pattaya for the village and the rest of Chaiyaphum 🙄

Preparation has started.

Thanks for posting and enjoy your trip.

Bought this BBQ online that I will be taking up to the village next trip so I can do a bit of my own cooking.

Day 2: the buffalows were having breakfast already.

We stayed last night at a new resort belonging to a small water park. Simple bungalows, not cheap at 600 Bt without breakfast. The matress felt like made from concrete.

The journey to Ubon via road 24 was not exiting, ricefields everywhere, everything looked the same. Will take a different route on the way back. 

After checking in the hotel and a qick shower we headed to the Wat Phra That Nong Bua. 

Looked different from all the other temples.

Sweet action.

Missus is from Ubon and we always take the 24 as well.

Your Missus place looks pretty flash compared to mine.

The money you’ve sent has been well spent.....compared to mine.🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
Loving the pics.

Next stop Wat Thung Si Muang. A small wooden temple, almost falling apart. No more than 5 people are allowed at one time to enter it.

Not much to see inside other than bird droppings and some small buddha figurines.

Time for dinner at the Mun river. After a quick search on the net our choice fell on the Chomjan Bar & Restaurant.

Day 3: Kaeng Tana National Park
Entrance fee for Thais 20 Bt, car 50 Bt and Farang 200 Bt. No wonder that there are no tourists.

Two color river view point.

The Mun river is joining the Mekong. Normally both have a diffeent colour which can be seen especially in April, but I heard that China is throttling the flow of the Mekong which as as consquence has now more clear water.

Didn't see many tourists in this area. Was a bit disappointed from the sights.

Next stop: Wat Tham Khu Ha Sawan

The Pha Team National Park features some cave paintings, estimated to be several thousand years old. 

Entrance for Thais 20 Bt, car 50 Bt and Farang 400. A bit greedy......

To see all the paintings one has to walk 5 km.

Sam phan bok. The best part of the trip.

At first I thought it is not much different to lake Maprachan.
