Hardly a more beautiful site than Nong Bua lit up. It is not in fact more than about 100 years old. It is also close to the zoo, also worth seeing.

Good place to visit. Located in the city, not far from the bus terminal station. Gorgeous decorations. The wax wagon is shown in the huge garage. A stall outside sold reasonable price Thai tradition dresses.
