Reposting from 2017. The Wat Pa Phu Kon temple is located in the mountains of Phu Kon along the Thai-Lao border in the north-west of Udon Thani province. In the middle of nowhere! It is a kind of meditation temple that is also visited by many Thai & Lao people. I would call it a tourist attraction, beautiful build on a beautiful location. If you are travelling with your own car, be aware that the last part of the road leading to the parking place is steep, very steep. Following are more photos of the beautiful Buddha images and details of the interior of the temple. In hindsight it is actually a bit a pity that one can build something here in the mountains and forrest.

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!
