Ban Nong Bua is a small Tai Lue village in Tha Wang Pha district and is located along the Nan River about 40 km north of Nan town. Although it is a nice village between the rice fields the main attraction to go here is the Wat Nong Bua, an old Tai Lue style temple with beautiful murals. Be aware that also in Na Noi district is a village Ban Nong Bua. If you like some help with organizing your holiday anywhere in Thailand send me an email at The Little Elephant Traveling in Thailand.
