Travel Thailand, Yasothon

Yasothon province covers the broad valley of the Mae Nam Chi just 100 km before it joins the Mun River on the outskirts of Ubon Ratchathani. Once a district of Ubon Ratchathani, Yasothon became a province in 1972. The provincial town on Highway 23 is famous for the Bun Bong Fai or Rocket Festival held each year in early May.

This small province has a large Muslim population. Traveling the heartland route from Khon Kaen, Yasothon is the far south-eastern point bordering on Ubon Ratchathani.

Yasothon Attractions:
Phra That Yasothon or Phra That Phra Anon is in Wat Maha That Yasothon in Muang district. 1,300 year old chedi spire resembles Phra That Phanom in Nakhon Phanom. Relics of Phra Anon, the closest disciple of the Lord Buddha, are kept here, and a festival to honour the Chedi occurs in March. The century-old scripture hall with its library is built on stilts in the middle of a pond.

The nine-acre Phaya Thaen Public Garden on Chaeng Sanit Road in the town itself is a community park where concerts and plays are hosted. Boat racing, Songkran festivities and events like the "Bun Bong Fai" Rocket Festival also are staged here.

The Phra That Kong Khao Noi at Ban Tat Thong is a distinctive brick pagoda dating back to the late Ayutthaya period (18 century).

Dong Muang Toey near the village of ban Song Puay in Kham Kuan Keao district is the site of a community believed to have originated around the 6th century. The ruins of a building at the site bear words which indicate that it was a Brahman shrine.

Mae Nam Chee Beach is a 2 km stretch of sand banks at the edge of the Chi River. The area is exposed as the river recedes during the dry season from December to May. Vendors set up food stalls and the sand bank transforms into an Isan style beach.

Phu Tham Phra, 16 km from Loeng Nok Tha district, is a famous cave that contains several Buddha images. Other notable caves include Kheng Ngu Chuang, Kliang and Phrom Butr.

Phu Thang Kwian, a rocky peak in the Phu Phan Mountains, 24 km from Kut Chum district, offers a spectacular view of the surrounding country.

Ban Si Than Pa Tiu district, 20 km east of Yasothon on Highway 202, isnoted for its handicrafts - khid cloth and triangle-shaped mawh kwan pillows.

Bun Bong Fa or Rocket Festival is held throughout Isan in early May, but is at its best in Yasothon where the town turns the ceremony into a two-day celebration. Held to induce the gods to send rain, the traditional giant rockets are fired into the sky to herald the start of rice planting.

A contest for the best rocket is held one day prior to the launching. Fireworks display, parades and beauty contests have also been added to make this festival one of the most colourful in Isan.
