Buddha & Monk images at Pha Tak Suea in Sangkhom 

In 2018 I was traveling along the Mekong River from Chiang Khan to Nong Khai and I did pass Sangkhom, a little town along the river. There are some restaurants and guesthouses here. A little bit after Sangkhom there is a road going up the small mountains nearby and you end-up about 120m higher at a park area where is also a temple. And at any temple are of course Buddha images. A Buddha a day keeps the doctor away, so there is a Buddha image for each day of the week. From here you also have a stunning view over the Mekong River and Laos.

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!
