Chaiyaphum Lodging and the Siam River Resort in Chaiyaphum Town, Thailand

First nights lodging was at Chulabhorn Reservoir at EGATs digs As at most reservoirs I found it a bit over priced, but no one is building nearby. When they started building resorts near the Ubol Rattana Reservoir it made a huge improvement to the lodging situation. The restaurant was the big plus. Service was good prices fair and the staff polite. It was even open before the official opening time. While there was wifi at the restaurant, even 3G was impossible at the lodging. The second night in Phakdee Chumphon, in just outside the district town Basic but 3G signal available and a good dinner a short walk down the road A restaurant owned by a lovely couple she from the area, he “Not Isaan People” from Korat.The night of the 14th we spent in Chaiyaphum town at the Siam River Resort for a princely 990 Baht. This included wifi and breakfast First of all the room had a real shortage of electric outlets The wifi was not the userid/pswd type, but once attached you went to a webpage where you inserted the info…

stonehengeI first visited Thailand’s Stonehenge,Mo Hin Khao a bit over thre years ago as you can see in The Blogspot Blog Isaan Life. Actually in spite of the dirt road and difficult access the site was in better form At the time there were markers explaining the shapes. Also the parking lot now adjacent to the stones now takes away from the ambiance of the place. Before it gave the feeling of remoteness, now especially with work going on it almost feels as if the stones have just been noved to the location. As usual in Thailand movement and construction do not indicate progress. The visitor center seems to act more as a bedsit than an information center and the Police station sits empty as well. Looks like some people once again got their pockets lined in Thailand. Whatever the case the site is certainly worth a visit and perhaps by the time you arrive…
