Wat Pa Salawan- Korat

Living in Korat I think people might think there's not much to see. Personally I think there is a lot to see. You just got to know it's there. I found this wonderful and quite modern Wat. It is still a quiet place but there is almost no trees left. The temple belongs to the Thammayut section and the chedi displays statues of their well known meditation teachers and monks. This is one of the high Buddhist places in Nakhon Ratchasima city. Once located in full the forest, it is now in the city but it retains a small part of forest and is located on the banks of a pond where it is pleasant to walk or have dinner on the restaurant terrace in front the temple chedi which has an uncommon architecture. Wat Pa Salawan houses the ashes of three highly revered monks in Thailand: Acharn Man, Acharn Tim and Acharn Sao.

Chiang Khan Bottle Craft

Chiang Khan in Northern Thailand, is better known for its traditional wooden houses, but it's arts and crafts is alive and kicking with these wonderful recycled plastic bottle lamps. Created with marker pens, soldering iron and paint these are truly recycling at it's best. The "wooden house" for the plastic bottle craft is in the "Walking street"of Chiang Khan and open every evening. Anyone can come and create their own version of these unique lamp shades.
