Phu Phra Bat Historical Park

This is situated in the unique site called Udon Thani. There are charming shrines that are kept within boulders and smaller spaces. Devotees are allowed to offer their prayers and devotion to these shrines. There are also several sections in the park where ancient rock art can be seen. Some areas have been marked as being scared by the Mon people who resided in the area centuries ago. Another small cave tower can be seen on the site, which is believed to have been the prison of a princess. Phu Phra Bat Park can be an excellent unique location to visit during your visit to the Avani Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Centre.

Sam Phan Bok

This is a unique geomorphic wonder situated in the Ubon Ratchathani Province in Thailand. The main feature of the area is the many holes that can be seen on the riverbed.

It is best to visit Sam Phan Bok during the dry season to see the true majesty of it. When water levels are high, the visibility of the holes and cliffs is quite minimal.

Several viewpoints give beautiful scenery of the forests around it. There is a special rock formation within the park that consists of stones that look like mammoth mushrooms.
