Lam Takhong Dam


Getting away from the hustle n bustle into a quite enviroment, where better than the peace and tranquility of the Lam Takhong Dam. The Dam was constructed specifically to irrigate the surrounding farmlands. Later years saw the dam become the water storage facility of The Lamtakhong Power Plant, whose components were constructed underground to preserve the environment, nature, and scenery of the area; a first for Thailand. The dam and surrounding area is a peaceful, relaxing environment to break away from the life of the city. alchetron.com



The place is suitable for winter relaxation. Famous for its beautiful scenery... the Lam Takhong Dam in Korat, Thailand. Built in 1974 commissioned by the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, deep 40m with its primary goal for irrigation, Lam Takhong dam is a water reservoir located on Tambon Lat Bua Khao. View of the reservoir and dam, with several restaurants and snack shops.

Nestled in the scenic hills that surround Khao Yai, once called life park Life Park revamped and rebranded as Scenical World, a huge theme park with three different zones. Each offers visitors a different experience, from thrilling rides and water park fun to themed shopping and dining. 20 types of adventurous rides and activities sei in about 45 rai of land, more for youngsters i would say as it includes the old time Gold Rush train, Bubble Bumper boats, Kiddie Town car driving course and Mix Extremes obstacles and climbing ropes. for older chidren a Speedway racing circuit, and large pendulum and swing-type thrill rides. The waterpark offers something for the whole family, bkkkids.com



The staff speak no English, so be prepared to speak Thai or sign language. Food choices are limited but good and reasonably priced: Thai food, sandwiches, pizza, ice cream. There are lots of different rides including some pretty impressive (scary) ones for the intrepid. A couple of rides for adults only, but there are plenty of rides for children taller that 1m20 or 1m30, depending on the ride. Rides are for 2 or 4 people at a time. There is also a large wave pool. For little kids there is a fun shallow play area with slides, steps, fountains etc and plenty of poolside sun lounges with umbrellas for shade. Entrance tickets include all the rides, but you will need cash to rent a locker (150 Bht), buy food & drinks (you can take absolutely no food or drink into the park with you - they check all bags), or if you want to rent one of the salas (private shaded area with comfy sunbeds etc)

Heo Suwat waterfall


The Haew Suwat Waterfall was probably the most popular waterfall in Khao Yai National Park. We felt this was the case because of its ease of access, its vicinity to a major campsite, and the heaps of people that were both around the falls as well as the short trail to get to its bottom. We thought Namtok Haew Narok was busy, but this waterfall put it on another level. We made our visit during the Dry Season so the 15m or so waterfall was split into a pair of parallel segments. The dual plumes dove right into a boulder-fringed dark plunge pool at its base. We saw there were some people who managed to swim then scramble their way to what appeared to be a cave-like alcove almost behind the waterfall. In any case, I'd imagine in the Wet Season, the falls would take on a thicker appearance, but it might lack the character that you might observe in the falls. In other words, this waterfall might be one of those cases where "less is more".



Even though we took a real short 15-minute walk to the bouldery edge of the fairly wide plunge pool at its base, there was a separate, short trail that went to the top of the waterfall. We saw numerous people who were chilling out from the top of the falls, which provided us with a sense of scale as to the height of the falls. During the short walk down to the base, we also noticed there was also an upper lookout platform offering up a a different perspective of the falls. all in all, we spent about 45 minutes on our visit, which consisted of just the walk to the base and the overlooks along the way. However, we didn't do the other trail leading to the brink of the falls. world-of-waterfalls.com Heo Suwat waterfall located in Khao Yai National Park

The temple was opened to public in November 2013 and since then it has been one of the largest shrines in whole of Asia. it is made up of ceramics and beautiful kaleidoscopic mosaics. The temple came into being with the efforts of the famous monk named Luang Poh Koon a costly project, but the good people give donations from politicians and other influential or common people which was the force behind the project. hence it is not surprising that this temple located in Dan Khun Thot in Korat acts as a magnet for worshipers and tourists alike. more info: thailandcarsrentals.com
