Not so far from Hat Chomtawan in Soeng Sang district, there is a small dam with natural view. Mostly visitors who visit Hat Chomtawan, on the way back will stop by at the dam before get back to central Korat.
Hat Chom Tawan locate in Soeng Sang District. The place is far from Korat City about 90 Km. It is a large beach by the lake. The area around was developed into a rest area for the public and there are plots for locals to make a living to reduce the problem of illegal logging. Tourists and local people normally come to swim and dine there, enjoy the view and camping and trekking can also be done. Long-tail boats can be hired to go on the reservoir.
