Located in the North East of Thailand, Loei is a sparkling jewel in a region, which boasts a unique combination of natural landscape, rich culture, relaxed way of life and a distinct northern feel.
To start with, natural charms abound. Loei is nestled in the Loei River valley, extending its serenity northwards for 47km. It is landscaped with picturesque mountains, beautiful caves, waterfalls and verdant valleys that provide a memorable trip for nature lovers.
A trip to Loei is not complete without visiting Phu Kradueng, the vast flat-topped table mountain, which can be reached on foot
within about 3-4 hours, depending on the pace. Either way, it is worth a journey! The top of the mountain is a natural wonder, with open grassland, maple, beech, oak and graceful pine trees. It is also a habitat of wild animals, retreating into the distance.
Another site that should not be missed is the smaller National Park Phu Reua, which is accessible by vehicle. The abundance of tropical vegetation and pine forest is also seen here.
Moreover, there are the Erawan Caves, which is home to a Buddha's image at the summit and is also a pilgrimage site. When hunger strikes, Huay Krating Lake can accommodate a picturesque dinner on a floating sala out on the river.
On a lazy day, strolling along the river provides a breathtaking and scenic view of fishermen in their rolling boats on the river, lined with lush green trees on both sides.
There are also lovely festivals and fairs in Loei to enjoy. Phee Ta Khon is an extraordinary example. The festival is held annually in June or July in the village of Dan Sai. Villagers dress up in ragged patched robes and costumes, with horrific masks. The procession moves through the town, to pay homage to their ancestors.
After eventful sightseeing, Loei Palace Hotel, located in the heart of the province offers comfortable 4-star accommodation. The hotel's restaurants offers a wide range of Thai, Chinese and international cuisine. Lazy days can be spent by the pool and facilities are also offered for business travellers.
