Traveling in Phetchabun province

Traveling in North-East Thailand

This is part 22 of the 48 (out of the 77) of all the provinces in Thailand I have stayed at least 1 night.  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.

It all began 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!
