Mountainous Loei, situated in northeastern Thailand, is a province that enchants tourists with its alluring cultures, captivating landscape and warm-welcoming people.
One of the best ways to take in the charms of the province is to jump on a bike for a two-wheeled exploration tour. There are many interesting destinations and the view along the way is breathtaking. Depending on your stamina and pedal power there is a wide choice of exciting destinations to seek out.
To start with, in the heart of Loei, approximately 500m from Loei Palace Hotel, the City Pillar Shrine, a holy shine for local people, is built of pink cassia and elaborately carved and inlaid with gold. Next to the Pillar, Chao Po Kut Pong Shrine, the city's oldest shrine, is also situated.
Loei Province Cultural Centre, only 5km from the city center, on Loei-Chiang Khan Road, has a great collection of artifacts and items typical of the indigenous cultures and traditions of Loei.
A more ambitious 17km ride away from the city is the Tham Phaa Pu Temple, surrounded by lush mountains - a veritable natural feast for the eyes and home to white-eye langurs. There are also several caves around the temple to delve into. The nearest is Phiang Din Cave, where the Luang Por Yai Buddha image is located.
To witness and be part of local way of life, the market is a mere 1km from Loei Palace Hotel and a fascinating experience. Fresh fruit, vegetables and other local produce are all on display.
An idyllic scene in the evening can be found riding along Loei River. Tall grass sways in the breeze alongside and the glittering sunset reflects in the water as the sun gradually lowers until it is just seen over the tips of the grass and disappears into the horizon - a most memorable picture!
At the end of the day, enjoy superb cuisine and a restful sleep in the comfort of Loei Palace Hotel, where warm hospitality awaits with a smile.
