Doi Phu Kha National Park

Reviewed By Charn P - Bangkok, Thailand


Champoo Phuka, the tree and its flower is becoming a rare and extinct tree. Presently, it can only be seen in Doi Phu Khao National Park in Nan Province. In order to see this rare flowers, we trekked through the jungle for about two hours in different elevations before reaching the blossoming flowers. We met at least 20-30 other curious local tourists who made the same trek. By coming to this national park in mid February, we were expecting more blooming flowers. However due to the late winter, the flowers are expected to bloom later. Fortunately we were able to witness few blossoming branches.
Overall the Doi Phu Khao National Park is very well managed. The Visitor Center was very well prepared to assist the visitors. They prepared daily local guides to take the visitors around the park. The trial within the jungle was well prepared and kept up. Keep up with the good work.

Wat Phuket

Reviewed By Cockerdog - Bangkok

If you are in the area then worth a stop. The temple is interesting and good views of the countryside. Below the temple is a guest house and several sarong/dressmakers one of which is patronized by the princess.

Doi Phu Kha National Park

Reviewed By Aspen E - Washington DC, District of Columbia

This park is situated near the Thai-Laos border and encompasses PhuKha Mountain, an old growth 'ancient' forest, and several other nice attractions. The park is home to a threatened tree and so serves as a shield against its extinction. A great purpose! There are a few nature trails, but I would like to see more interpretive trails developed as well as better accommodation facilities. The biggest drawback is the distance required to get to this park but that makes it all the more remote and purposeful.

Ton Dik Diam

Reviewed By PORhibido - Krungthep Mahanakorn

Wat Prang in Pua is featured in the first edition of Unseen Thailand for its dik diam tree that allegedly shakes when touched, some say, only by Buddhist monks. When we visited, we didn’t see one around so we tapped the tree ourselves but failed to notice any movement. Perhaps we weren’t holy enough! Apart from that, there isn’t much to see at this architecturally ordinary temple.

A great example of an old Wat close to Pua .you’ll need a car to get there but worth the trip to see the architecture.

Wat Phrathat Beng Sakat

Reviewed By Charn P - Bangkok, Thailand

Wat Phrathat Beng Sakat was under renovation when we visited it in February 2015. The temple is known to be the first temple of Pua, The temple style of large and low roof is rather unique for this area. There are four major temples in the town of Pua and they are different in style as well as their surrounding. Visit all four and make your own comparison.
