We visited this place a lot of times already this year. We had many friends who visited us here and they came either for a holiday or for a purpose. Either way, we are glad to be with them. Many tourists came to this place and connect to some places around Thailand. It will take 30-45 minutes for you to travel from the city.
You can go by Songtiew ( which is the cheapest transpo), by car or by taxi from the city proper. It’s not far I suppose, many tourists came and enjoyed the place.
