Sri Sa Skat

Post by trubrit » January 2, 2013, 2:20 pm

A nice little country town. Spent the New Year over there visiting family. The town itself is not much to write about but has a nice mall store where you can have a beer and people watch. A Tesco , Makro and a Big C. No where to tempt the missus to spend big money. The surrounding area has a lot of interest however. My day in the livestock breeding farm in another topic being one. However I spent another day in a woodland park dedicated to the late Princess mother.Somdej Sri Nakarinda.This is a beautiful natural place to preserve the local flora and animals .It is free to get in but there is a small zoo , charging 15bht adults, 10baht children . Thai or Farang.Lots of interesting creatures but I especially liked the birds of prey and the small deer varieties. There are lots of shaded seating spots to rest your weary feet .If you go mid-week as I did, it is a popular place for school trips. Not many Farang around so you become a novelty for them with lots of smiles and curiosity, just as Udon used to be 10 years ago.A few pictures to whet your appetite.:

I have spent a couple of days in Si Sa Ket. It is famous for growing the most delicious rice in Thailand. Many Thais see it as a jumping off point to make some money on the border with Cambodia...buying cheap, selling expensive. There are also some nice and important wats in the area.
