Visiting Phu Hin Rong Khla

Traveling in North-East Thailand

While passing Phu Hin Rong Khla we stopped as some places like Lan Hin Teak where you can make a short walk (about 700m one-way) to a view-point (perfect for sunset). Depending on the season there are many flowers. At the other side of Phu Hin Rong Khla is Phu Thap Boek. Only 3 years ago this area was rediscovered by inbound tourism and currently it is unfortunately on the risk of being over-used by building new resorts, restaurants and small market shops. Soon there will be no space left for the farming of carrots, vegetables, flowers and even some rice. Of course the originally forest is here gone already along time ago. At the view-point (stunning view) is what was once an hill-tribe market. Originally probably selling poppies and later vegetables. Nowadays selling vegetables and warm cloths for tourism. But the people are still the same descents from Chinese hill-tribes (mostly Hmong). Most time still dressed in their traditional cloths (and they ain't doing that for the tourists). In the weekends and holidays it might get busy here, but in week-days the most places do not even bother to open their shop.
