    I am really enjoying your blog! I moved to Sisaket province last month to teach English in Utumponphisai. My husband and I are looking for a 3-4 day trip that involves waterfalls (ideally swimmable ones), and nature for New Years this year. We haven’t rented a motorcycle yet, but I think we will start renting one by the month soon. I speak a little bit of Thai, and he speaks none. Do you have any suggestions for how to make this sort of trip possible? Perhaps a travel agency or a recommendation of a bungalow in a National Park or near a waterfall. We have limited access to wifi, but I will check back soon for your response!

    Kap kun ka!

      Huai Luang is by far the best waterfall for swimming. You could spend a day there doing little hikes, seeing the lower falls, swimming and eating. There is a new “resort” just as you are about to enter the park. I don’t know the name of it but it looks nice. Not sure if you know but “resort” in Thailand is often just a bungalow with aircon, fridge, hot water and a bed. All you need really. That’s not too far from you. Huai Chan Waterfall also isn’t far from you (see list of waterfalls for location info). It’s more just rapids but kind of a fun place to explore. Pha Taem is a popular place for people to stay in bungalows and there are several resorts in the area on the Mekong River. That would be a good place for a couple days as there are multiple waterfalls in the area, Soi Sawan being my favorite for swimming. I don’t know anything about tour operators or the resorts because we just drive our truck and camp in tents. If you’re in to camping I highly, highly recommend taking a trip up to Chanadai Cliff for a couple nights. It’s a bit of a drive from where you are but worth it in my opinion.

    Thanks for the advice! I will check out Huai Luang once we get a motorcycle. Are there buses that go there?
