Home - Travel stories - Uthumphon Phisai - First impression

Kamphaeng is located about 500 km east of Bangkok, between Surin and Si Saket. No place where you just end up. No hotels, few restaurants, at eight o├žlock almost everyone is asleep.
We have been there twice. Phranom, a sister of Pia, has been a teachers at an elementary school, and she thought that we can it would enjoy. And we did. In Kamphaeng is not much to do. There is one very nice-Khmer ruins in the grounds of the local temple, Prasat Hin Wat Sa Kamphaeng Yai , definitely worth a visit, but otherwise .....
The area is very nice, but you need a car. Trips to the Mekhong with ancient petroglyphs on the steep rocky shore, a border crossing to Laos, Khao Phra wihaan on the border with Kampuchea, all very worthwhile.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
