Drive around Thailand in 14 Days – Day 7

Date : 24th December 2006
Destination : Phu Ruea National Part, Loei, Isan

Wake up in the morning welcome by very cold weather about 6 degree celcius. Had our breakfast at the resort and decide to visit the Phu Ruea National Park.

Phu Ruea National is just like our Taman Negara where no development is allow in this forest reserve. I do not remember the exact entrance fees, I guess it about RM10-RM15 for adult and RM6 for children.

We park the car at the designated parking place and track up to the mountain overseeing Laos. This distance is about 2KM and the scenary is very beutiful, the strong wind and cold weather make it more comfortable walking up the mountain.

On top of the mountain is a small temple with a buddha statue. You may notice there is a small truck parking next to the temple, that car is use by staff working in the park. How I wish I can drive up there as well.

We left Phurua National Park about Noon and went on to explore the near by area, we went to the local market to had our lunch and back to the resort about 4pm, had a quick nap and get ready for our highlight of the tour, Chirstmas party.

We had nice barbeque dinner and karaoke session as well, everybody had and wonderful time.

Merry Christmas !!!!
