Non Muang, Archeological Site, Chumpae, Khon, Kaen, Isaan, Thailand

I last visited about two years ago, but am updating some old blogspot  posts that people have been searching for. You can find the correct location on my Khon Kaen Provice map or view below the slideshow.  This ancient city in Chumpae, Khon, Kaen, Isaan, Thailand dates back to a couple thousand years ago it is said. I tought it would get a lot more mention online as it is a well done exhibit both grave sites and modern sections.This ancient Chumpae site,85 kilometres from the Khonkaen, is believed to have been inhabited from prehistoric times until at least the 10th century AD. Human skeletons and 3,000-Phra That Kham Kaenyear-old bronze tools have been discovered in the area. This is what is generally copied and pasted on the internet and seems true enough. It is certainly worth the stop if in the area.

Along the Mekong River in Ubon Ratchatani Thailand

After being attacked by a motorcycle, Larry and I finally arrived at Chang Mohp. I had been there before and was pretty tired after the 2 hours being patient, adamant and polite in the face of the Thai throngs.

Thailand khonkaen morning rush hour 12.01.12

I was passing th intersection at the Northeast corner of Beung Kaen Nakhon hear in town and decided to give you a glimpse of morning traffic here in town. If I were to rate intersections for traffic-danger here in Khon Kaen from 1 to 10, 1 being the quietest, 10 being the most congested the would be a 3. When I get real stupid 1 morning I’ll get out a record a 7+

khon kaen countdown to 2011 crapper bog

This bog was the highpoint of the trip to khon kaen Countdown to 2011.
Larry at khon kaen retirement has already commented on the fest itself. The only other thing to note is the location. This is arguably the most congested intersection in town as well as one of the most dangerous. I guess this can be seen as a holiday “culling the population festival”

Anyhow back to the bog. This one was one of the most dangerous for westerners as many would fall off it. Westerners who sat on the rim were known to contract some interesting dermatological conditions.
