Loei seeing more tourists, especially on weekends

 Thailand:LOEI, Oct 20 -- Popular tourist destinations in Loei's Phu Rua, Chiang Khan and Phu Kradung districts are packed with enthusiastic tourists these days, especially on weekends.
But the newest tourist destination in Loei gaining popularity now is Phu Pa Poh, situated in a wildlife conservation area in a Nong Hin district village.
It allows visitors to view another hill called Phu Hor which looks similar to Mount Fuji, Japan's highest mountain at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft), an active volcano that last erupted more than 300 years ago.
Because it reminds viewers of similarity, tourists called it the ‘Fuji of Loei’.
To get close enough to appreciate its beauty, visitors must travel by small vehicle some 1.5 kms. The transport fare  is 60 baht per visitor.
Reaching the top of Phu Pa Poh, tourists can view the beauty of nature in four directions, including the sun and the thick sea of fog.
Resorts at popular destinations in Loei are now fully booked as tourists continue their stay to appreciate the stunning natural beauty, even as the temperature in some areas dropped to 13 Celsius early yesterday.
Thousands of tourists also converge on the royal villa and the Mae Fah Luang Gardens of the late Princess Mother in the northernmost province of Chiang Rai to see and admire the beauty of flowers and plants which are usually seen in the West.
Many bought flowers and plants to decorate their homes to welcome the upcoming Christmas and New Year holiday.
Elsewhere in the country, Khao Kradong is an extinct volcano some 265 metres above sea level in the northeastern province of Buri Ram, tourists can view a wooden bridge across the ancient extinct volcano and worship to Phra Suphattharabophit, an important  Buddha image of the province.
More than 300,000 visitors are expected to tour the area during this winter season and several million baht would circulate there. (MCOT online news)

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
