About Travel to Amnat Charoen
Amnat Charoen is the main town of a province of the same name, located around 600 km by road to the North East of Bangkok. Amnat Charoen Province is sparsely populated, and the town of Amnat Charoen is small with around 26,000 inhabitants. The town’s facilities, whilst small in number compared to other towns in the North Eastern Region of Thailand such as Buri Ram, are much more extensive than those available in any other part of Amnat Charoen.
Amnat Charoen is one of the more remote and underdeveloped parts of Thailand. The local economy is based on agriculture. There are few factories or other industrial developments in Amnat Charoen Province, but lots and lots of rice fields and sugar cane plantations. This lack of development is, in itself, one of the province’s main attractions. Local culture and traditions are important to the people of Amnat Charoen Province, and folk music, dance and traditional silk weaving are important features of every day life.
In terms of things to see and do the province’s main attractions are located outside of Amnat Charoen Town. Two locations are particularly notable. The first is the Phu Sa Dok Bua National Park, which is located about an hour by road to the North of Amnat Charoen Town. The Phu Sa Dok Bua National Park features a large hill on top of which are a series of small ponds formed by water collecting in depressions in the rock. Colourful lotus flowers cover the surface of the ponds. The second popular local attraction is a stretch of the Mekong river in the district of Chanuman where large rock formations become visible when the water level drops. Locally these island like rock formations are referred to as ‘Tang Lang’ in reference to their similarity in appearance to shallow containers.
Amnat Charoen also has two popular religious sites. The best known of these is Phra Mongkhon Ming Mueang, which features a 20 metre high statue of the Lord Buddha. The other is Wat Phra Lao Thep Nimit, which is a temple housing the Phra Lao Thep Nimit statue. The Phra Lao Thep Nimit staute was created in 1720 and widely considered to be the most beautiful statue of the Lord Buddha in the North Eastern Region of Thailand.
