Visiting the Wat Phra That Phanom in That Phanom along the Mekong River

Traveling in North-East Thailand
Wat Phra That Phanom in That Phanom

In 2010 we arrived in That Phanom during a trip along the Mekong River in North-East Thailand. After a small walk along the Mekong River we walked via a small street with old Chinese shop houses to this beautiful Chedi. Very peaceful and beautiful paintings of the life of Buddha. Many Thai & Lao tourist come here for gaining merit (= good luck for the lottery). Following are more photos of the Wat Phra That Phanom.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
