Top Things to Do in Sa Kaeo
Sa Kaeo is an eastern border province of Thailand, located approximately 245 kilometres from Bangkok. In the past, it was an important and prosperous community with a History dating back to the Dvaravati Kingdom, observable from the remains of ancient monuments scattered across the province, as well as artefacts that shed light on the history and glory of Sa Kaeo’s ancestors.
Apart from historical remains worthy of study, Sa Kaeo also possesses abundant natural resources, such as Pang Sida and Ta Phraya National Parks, as well as unique, canyon-like soil sculptures called “Lalu” that are caused by ground subsidence.
At the Thai border in Amphoe Aranyaprathet, Sa Kaeo serves as a gateway to Cambodia, connecting international commercial Transport and tourism at a hectic border crossing. As a result of the massive influx of goods and people passing back and forth, Rong Kluea Market offers both cheap and second-hand products from the two neighbouring countries.
1. “Lalu” one of the tourist attractions in the special program called “Isaan Sanook“
“Lalu”, a natural phenomenon in Ta Phraya National Park. The word Lalu is derived from the Khmer language influence and is found all over the place. “Lalu” here refers to a subsided land that is a result of a natural phenomenon caused by the erosion of rainwater and the subsidence or collapse of soil. Since the hard soil is durable and does not erode. When it is eroded by the wind, it makes several shapes like a city wall or a cliff. Some of them look like sticks, just like a natural source around Phae Mueang Phi, Phrae province, but smaller. Lalu has an area of more than 2,000 rai and is one of the Unseen Thailand that should be visited.
