Trvel Thailand, Nong Bua Lam Phu

Nong Bua Lamphu, formerly part of Udon Thani, became a province in December 1993. The new province has a population of less than 500,000 and is divided into five districts and one sub-district covering an area of 3,860 square kilometres wedged between Loei and Udon Thani provinces. The provincial town is located just 50 km west of Udon Thani on Highway 210. Loei is 102 km due west on the same highway.

Nong Bua Lam Phu Attractions:
Wat Tham Klong Phen
, located in the foothills of the Phu Phan Mountains, is a well-known meditation centre. Visitors pay homage to the shrine of the late abbot Luang Pu Khao. The temple also contains an ancient drum and the Phra Buddha Banthon Nimitr Buddha image.

Wat Tham or Wat Suphanna Khuha, 52 km from town, bears an old inscription indicating King Chaichetha of Vientiane built the temple in 1572.

Tham Erawan is a large cave in a hill which can be reached by climbing a winding staircase. The main chamber has an impressive array of stalactites. The cave is about 47 km from town just off Highway 210.

Noen Wat Pa is an old monastery in Non Sang District, 51 km from Nong Bua Lamphu. The principal attraction is a laterite Buddha image seated under a five-headed naga. Artifacts from the area indicate Noen Wat Pa was originally built in the Khmer period.


Phu Phan Kham National Park is noted for its Phu Kao or "Nine Mountains". The nine-mountain area in Nong Sang district boasts a wealth of forests and wildlife. There are several waterfalls in the park but a visit to Lan Hin Waterfalls in the park but a visit to Lan Hin Waterfall with its jagged rocks and Tham Phahai, a cave with prehistoric paintings, is a worthwhile excursion in the park.

Another highlight is a boat trip on the reservoir which can be extended into an overnight stay. The reservoir was formed by blocking the Pong River. The main camping site is located 6 km from the dam.

The reservoir itself is dotted with island, and a small fishing village in Nong Sang is worth a visit. The park's headquarters are on the northern shore of the Ubol Ratana Reservoir.

Than Ngam, or "Beautiful Stream", is a national park in Nong Saeng district. As its name suggests, there is an abundance of streams. The park is also noted for its waterfalls, caves and scenic stretches of rocky landscape.

Monument of King Naresuan the Great, which stands in the public park in Muang district, honors the King who drove the Burmese out of Ayutthaya in 1593. Naresuan not only regained the territories belonging to Ayutthaya, but added Chiang Mai to the Kingdom as well. A ceremony is held here annually on 25 January.

Ban Kud Kho Mei and Ban Kud Kwang Soi in Non Sang district are the site of ancient settlements. Prehistoric artifacts have been discovered here including pottery similar to that found at Ban Chiang in Udon Thani province
