List 38/52 – The Sights We Saw Around Sisaket Province

1. Sisaket Aquarium. In Sisaket city itself the aquarium is small but enjoyable and cheap at 20-30B entry. There is a small tunnel with the main attraction being giant Mekong catfish. We got to see a diver feeding the catfish and stingrays.

2. Wat Lan Khuat ‘The Million Bottle Temple’ – a temple covered in bottles with decorations and mosaics made out of bottle tops. The bottles symbolise the need for clarity of purpose in one’s life. Even the water tanks were covered in bottles. The temple is in Khun Han.

3. Namtok Huai Chan waterfall. We went on a drizzly Saturday and the place was packed so I’d imagine it gets very busy on sunny days. Thai people swim fully clothed, jeans and all. We also enjoyed a yummy lunch here of sticky rice, fish, papaya salad and grilled chicken.

4. Wat Prathat Ruang, near Sisaket. With giant buffalo at the entrance and kitsch garden decorations and animal statues. There was also a museum showing how the different ethnic groups of the area dress and live. The kids had a great time ringing bells and gongs.

Thai temple kitsch. Chickens, mushrooms and a squirrel tied to a tree.
