Wow what a great day I had over 20 Siamese carp and the biggest was probably 80lb, and loads between 30lb and 50lb. You can't get better for a day's fish

Wat Tham Klong Phen

Reviewed By Gary G R - nong bua lam phu, Thailand

I am an American who has lived in Nong Bua Lam Phu over 5 years. I enjoy photographing and visiting temples throughout Thailand and this is one of my favorites. It's not actually in Nong Bua Lam Phu, but about 13-14km to the turn-off on the road (Route 210) to Udon Thani. At the turn-off you will see a large sign and from there it is about a 2km drive back to the temple. This is such a peaceful place, not many visitors, so you can leisurely take in the surrounding beauty of the temple and the grounds. This temple "Klong Pen" means a two-sided ancient drum, and you will see a replica as you explore the Ubosot (Main hall). The temple itself has been constructed in and around a large cave in the side of the mountain. I think you will find this to be a worthwhile place to visit as you visit, or pass through Nong Bua Lam Phu Province.

Wat Tham Erawan Temple

Reviewed By PC1955 - Spartanburg, South Carolina

The food vendors have moved to a location just before the temple grounds gateway.
These are local people who need the income, and offer a good value for your money.
The vendors will be allowed to operate on the temple grounds during holidays, but other times will be set up on the right as you approach the temple in a new area.
Wat Tham Erawan still remains a popular destination for Thai tourists, and the few foreign tourists who pass through.

Million-year-old shell fossils

Reviewed By Somsak M - Singapore, Singapore

A small prehistoric museum, spread out in 2 buildings. One of them has a large display of, you guessed it, million-year-old fossilized shells, plus a lot of posters in Thai explaining how this museum was built. The other larger building has the usual dinosaur displays. Possibly the most impressive part of the museum is the large sauropod standing over the arched entrance to the museum, something you cannot possibly miss when you drive along highway 210.
