Thailand Travel Guide Loei Calls out Loudly Loei

Loei Calls out Loudly Loei Thailand Travel Guide On any fine morning, if you happen to be on the high hills in Loei province, chances are you'll be greeted by unbelievably fresh cool air and the morning mist that swirls around the green mountain despite that it's not the winter season. It looks just like the postcard view of some countryside in Europe. This may sound a bit exaggerated, but the fact remains _ you can see such a picturesque sight only 450 kilometers from Bangkok. The charm of Loei has been built on the two famous mountainous attractions of Phu Luang and Phu Kradung. Actually, 80% of Loei is mountainous area and to the locals it is known as the place where you see the `sea of mountain' in Thailand. But Loei doesn't have only Phu Kradung and Phu Luang. An equally charming and peaceful sight lies about 100 kilometres to the west behind the Phetchabun mountain range. They are the three districts of Phu Rua, Dan Sai and Na Haew which is considered the coldest point in Thailand.

You turn left for Amphur Khaeng Hang Maew and the Khao Nam Tok Nam Phen National Park. Recently a group headed off with 21 altered off-road vehicles to drive on a tough trail and stay overnight at the Twin Madeau camping site in deep forest inside the park.
