About Loei

Loei is a province in the northeast of Thailand.  Its geographic features are like the North, that is, there are mountains with cool temperature and fog.   One place that is popular among travellers who love challenging experience is Phu Kradung National Park.  It is said that the couples can prove their love by going to the peak of Phu Kradung.

At Phu Kradung, travellers can see the beautiful sunrise and scenic views of fields and mountains at the Pha Nok Ann viewpoint.  Along the trails, you can find heather flowers, and their fully blooming season is during March – April.  If you want to see the sunset, Pha Lomsak is the most popular viewpoint.  Moreover, you can walk on the trail to see Anodard pond, Phen waterfall and Pha Yearb Mek.  You may spend 3 days to explore every attraction in Phu Kardung.

If climbing to Phu Kradung is difficult for you, you can go to Phu Ruea National Park.  The national park is located in the big mountain with the large pine tree field.  It is less difficult than in Phu Kradung because you can drive to the campsite.  Phu Ruea (sailboat mountain) National Park is named after the outstanding sail-shaped cliff in the national park.

There is a district that becomes the talk of the town among Thai and foreign travellers – Amphur Chiang Khan.  It is the peaceful city with interesting attractions.  Kaeng Kud Koo, for example, is the clusters of rocks with beautiful colors under the river.  In dry season when the river level declines, you will see the colors and beauty of the rocks.  Chiang Khan Walking Street is one of the places you can’t miss.  You can enjoy walking and shopping local products and food on the street with the over-100-year buildings along the both side of the street.  The recommended food are Khaoa Pieak Sen (rice noodles soup), Mieng Kham (savoury leaf wraps), Khaow Chee (grilled sticky rice), and ancient ice-cream. 

After shopping, you can have a rest at homestays or resorts along the street with reasonable prices.
