  • Must visit historic site at Thailand. The Buddha head in tree roots is one of the main attraction bring me here and it’s not dissipated me as well. More and more eye catching historic buildings will rejuvenate our eyes. You can except more tourists here and you can spend well if you are even planing a day trip as well. The simplicity of the location is worth visiting. Also, it’s a sacred place so please be responsible.
