Inside Wat Neramit Vipassana

Wat Neramit Vipassana – Dan Sai

Wat Neramit Vipassana in Dan Sai District, Loei Province, got the better of me. No matter how many times I tried, I could not get a full-on photograph of the impressive-looking Ordination Hall (Ubosot). The hall is the largest of its kind in Thailand at 80 metres long by 40...

Hi-Fine Steak Restaurant Near Phu Rua, Loei

The Hi-Fine Steak Restaurant is seven kilometres from Phu Rua on the Loei-Dan Sai mountain road. It’s an out-of-the-way restaurant, attracting passing trade and deserves to be a lot busier than it seems to be. The food is good, the restaurant has inside and outside seating, and the view from the rear garden overlooking Loei’s...

Wat Pa Huay Lad in Phu Rua, Loei

My first sight of Wat Pa Huay Lad in Phu Rua, Loei Province, was impressive. The near-empty car park didn’t do justice to the view.

  My annual Christmas pilgrimage to Thailand got off to a great start once again. For many years now Etihad Airways have upgraded me to Business Class for the Heathrow to Abu Dhabi leg of my Christmas flight. That was the case again and the ‘golden parachute’ continued for the second...

Love Loei Coffee Shop in Phu Rua

Love Loei Coffee Shop in Phu Rua

I wouldn’t say I love coffee, tea is more to my taste but some of Thailand’s coffee shops are eye-catching enough to tempt me to sip a cup of black bean juice every now and then. Love Loei Coffee Shop in Phu Rua is one such place. It’s a beautiful looking and camera-ready pit...

The Ban Thai Bar and Restaurant in Loei

The Ban Thai Bar and Restaurant in Loei

  Loei Province is in the North-East region of Thailand and its major city, Loei, is a place I’ve travelled to on several occasions. Loei is a mountainous province and its dominant city is decent-sized but hardly one that will receive an invite to the Big City Ball. It’s also a place...
