  • We went straight for the summit. You can hike it I believe, but we chose to drive up. A winding but decent road. There is plenty of parking at a small welcome center there. From there you can either w...  more »
  • Phu Ruea is said to be the coldest spot in Thailand. It was 15 Celsius so not sure if that's true or not. Although, October is the end of rainy season and we're approaching winter. It was our lucky da...  more »

  • Always cool temps with great views. A great hot season getaway.
  • Love the flowers! This is like what makes Loei province as the New Zealand-Switzerland of Thailand.
  • Not worth it. Foreigner paid 200 bath/person to see only mountain, but thai people paid only 40 bath/person. The fee is 5 times for foreigners. I have been to many places around the world, the fee for foreigners and local people is not more than 2 or 3 times. Example. Bana hill, Danang, Vietnam fee for local people is 500.000 dong & Foreigners is only 600.000 dong. Don't come here if you want see only the mountain!!!
  • Great views! Makes for a nice day out.
  • There is a very good place in Thailand, fresh air, good view.
