Traveling in Sakhon Nakhon province 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 34 of the 47 (out of the 77) provinces where I have at least stayed overnight once. Sakhon Nakhon province is located in the Northern-East of North-East Thailand and clockwise surrounded by Bueng Kan province, Nakhon Phanom province, Mukdahan province, Kalasin province and Udon Thani province. Of course the capital town is named  Sakhon Nakhon and is famous for its huge lake with beautiful lotus flowers.
