Road trip to Loei

Recommended Posts

After our trip to Ubon Ratchathani we fancied the "mountains". So we drove up north to Loei which is not that far from our "family headquater" in Chaiyaphum.

On the way we made a short stop at Mor Hin Khao, also called the Stonehenge of Thailand. It is located about 50 km north of Chaiyaphum.

We drove past the Phu Kradueng National Park, which is a wellknown destination and arrived at Wat Pa Huay Lad, located about 45 km west of Loei.

Our main target destination was Phu Ruea National Park, where we wanted to enjoy the view. Of course, first had to pay the park fee (200 Bt Farang, 20 Thai, 50 car) 

27-28° was a pleasant temperature.

The view a bit hazy.

There are plenty of resorts in the vicinity of the national park but we preferred to stay over night in Loei city.

We had dinner at the บ้านร่มไม้  which was a short walk from our hotel.

The Soi on the opposite side has many pubs with live music. We had some drinks in the Saloon Loei which is under German management, featuring european food and many girls in tight, short jeans.

The next day we had a glance at the rafts on the Huai Krathing reservoir.

The rafts will be attached to a longtail boat and then push to somewhere.  :default_fishing:

The engine is quite noisy.

Time to go home. On the way back we stopped at the Ubolratana dam/reservoir.

Not much water left inside.

Great photos looks interesting. It’s one thing I’d like to do when I spend more time in Thailand is to travel

Been there dozens of times, it is about 25 minutes away from my wife's home north of Khon Kaen.  The restaurant there at the point looking out to the reservoir serves good food at very reasonable prices.  I have always enjoyed a trip there and very close by to the main entrance is the Buddhas Footprint (Wat Phra Bat Kham) which is well worth a trip up.

Nice report, thanks for posting
