Amnant Charoen



 


What :

Amnant Charoen lies in the Mekong River basin of Northeastern Thailand. Founded 200 years ago, the town today is a quaint Thai rural getaway with Cambodian and Laotian influences in the architecture, food, and customs.

Traditional boat races are still held on the Mekong, and the annual races in November are a lively spectacle that should not be missed. Traditional handcrafts are numerous and include hand cut gemstones, and the region produces some of Thailandís finest silk garments.

Phu Sa Dok Bua National Park is not far from town, and trekking through the parkís verdant forests to reach the 11 stone-lined lotus pools on the mountaintop is a popular excursion on luxury tours of Thailand.

Don Chao Poo is a nature preserve dedicated to the preservation and research of the hundreds of long-tail macaques that live in the provinceís forests. Developed and implemented by the local populace, the reserve is an eco-friendly and sustainable destination on a tour in Thailand.


When :

The skies are clear from November to January here, but towards the end of the season the region is particularly cool compared to the rest of Isan. Seasonal rainfall is heaviest between June and October, and the hottest weather is from March to May.


Where :

Loei is the capital city of Loei Province in Northeastern Thailandís Isan region. Private vehicle service departing from Chiang Mai is the best way to reach this splendid and remote mountain area.


Who :

The large swathes of park protected lands make Loei a great place to enjoy quiet isolation while trekking.


Appropriate Attire :

Dress for a hike, and bring along warm clothing as the province can be shockingly cold, especially after arriving from lower elevations.

Jason & Cindy Burgess - October 2013

My family and I took a two week long tour of Thailand with Easy Tours of Thailand and the trip truly could not have been any better.

Our guide was very personable, knowledgeable, and her English was excellent. In addition to offering a unique and local perspective throughout the tour, we were completely at ease with her and felt that she truly wanted to make our experience the best it could possibly be.

The private driver and vehicle that was set up for us was also excellent. I knew prior to our trip that it would probably be best to reserve this type of service during our travels, but I had no idea how invaluable this ended up being for us. He maneuvered through crowded streets and unexpected roadblocks with ease, and knew which areas to avoid driving through and efficient alternative routes. To top it off, the vehicle was always very clean, air conditioned, and there were cold drinks waiting for us after visiting a site.

The tour itself was completely tailored to what we wanted to see and what our interests are with assistance from their U.S Sales Office prior to arriving in Bangkok. They provided a day by day itinerary for us which was great, but the best part was having the freedom to change things as needed, or make unexpected stops to explore, as the tour unfolded.

I would definitely use this company again if we go back to Thailand.
