Great breakfast at Anothai Hotel, on the road at 7AM â€“ first stop – The Ancient City at Chum Phae – Interesting but leaves a lot to your imagination â€“ they really donâ€™t look like real bones, I thought they looked more like reproductions but you canâ€™t get close enough to really find out. The local area has no indication that any thing exist here and itâ€™s hard to figure out how they knew how where to dig. – you decide for yourself.
From here we headed to the King Cobra Village of Thailand past Khon Kaen on the way to Udon Thani. Hereâ€™s where the Google Maps really helped â€“ asked several locals for directions to the place and each sent us on a wild goose chase â€“ they just didnâ€™t know their own neighborhood. They had boas and cobras and put on a hour free show, just asking for donations â€“ nice. Finally we stopped at the Paradise Hotel in Udon Thani. We have been covering a lot of territory and so only stopped at a couple of venues â€“ going off the main highways to get to these places takes a lot of time and I didnâ€™t want to drive at night but still make it fully around in the 4 days allotted.
