Loei



 


What :

The high-peaked and often mist shrouded mountains around Loei are the Isan regionís mirror of the rugged peaks of Northern Thailand. The weather found here is extreme for Thailand meaning in the colder months the temperatures can drop below freezing before spiking up to some of highest heat in the country during the summer. Known as ďthe land of seas of mountains,Ē the Mekong River separates Loei from Laos.

Well off the beaten path, Loei offers travelers touring Thailand a special blend of cultures and customs from its ethnically diverse people that results in a variety of dialects and traditions, but itís the untouched beauty of the mountains and forests here, much of it protected by a plethora of national parks, that provides the biggest draw for tourists. Phu Kradung, Phu Luang, and Phu Reua National Parks provide some of the provinceís most treasured sights.

In December and January, the temperatures at higher elevations allow for an actual fall season, an incredibly rare thing in this part of the world. Watching the bright green of the foliage fade to dusky reds and sharp yellows is a rare treat for travelers on luxury tours of Thailand.


When :

The best weather is from November to January here. June through October rainfall causes the country side to bloom, and the highest temperatures fall between March and May.


Where :

Amnant Charoen is the capital city of Amnant Charoen Province in rural Northeastern Thailand. Itís best reached by private vehicle departing from Central Thailand.


Who :

A rural destination well-beyond traditional Thai tourist areas, Amnant Charoen is a great place to leave the beaten path and taste the unique flavors of Issan culture in the northeast.


Appropriate Attire :

Western style clothing is fine in town, but if youíre heading out to enjoy the majestic countryside dress for a hike.

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.
