Traveling in Phetchabun province in North-East Thailand

Traveling in North-East Thailand

Last year I did make a posting about counting all the provinces I had been in Thailand. And I saw I have been to (stayed in) 48 provinces out of the 76. So in the coming months I will travel via my postings from the most southern province I have been to the most northern province, with some photos and information about each province. This is part 22 of the 47 (out of the 77) provinces where I have at least stayed overnight once. Phetchabun province is at the North-western side of North-East Thailand, bordering Central Thailand and North Thailand. The capital city of Phetchabun province is of course Phetchabun.

For me personally it is was probably in 2014 that I did go for the first time to Phetchabun, making a motorbike trip with friends. As Phetchabun province is home to mountains it is a great area for motorbike riding. Also Khao Kho has become a tourist destination for people from Bangkok, in the past this was the battleground between the Thai government and the Communist Party of Thailand. It is a wonderful totally off the beaten track province of North-East Thailand, not only for motorbike riding but also for exploring the real Thailand. For more postings click on the label Phetchabun province. Following are a few photos I made while motorbike riding in Phetchabun province.
