Kalasin Things to Do

  • Historical Fa Daet Song Yang

    Fa Daet Song Yang is an old ruin that's supposed to date back to the 13th century. Not much is left, except a few chedi scattered around a large open area with a bit of shade (so it can be very hot in the afternoon). The biggest chedi is called Phra That Yakhu, supposedly to contain the remains of a senior monk.

  • The Black Statue Of Wat Klang
