On the motorbike to Phetchabun and Loei
This is a trip report of 2013, but not much changed and it is still a recommended route to ride motorbike. Together with some other bikers from Khon Kaen I made a 2 day tour in North-East Thailand. And it was a great trip! Our first destination was Phetchabun to tour the area of Khao Kho, in Thailand also nicknamed Little Switzerland. Due to late leaving, good & long breakfast and dark-visors on the helmets we could not make it far into Khao Khao before it would become really dark. But route 2258 is a promising route to come back again soon. Route 2258 starts at route 21 between Phetchabun and Lomsak. We made a u-turn in Khao Kho and did ride back to town, where we stayed at the Burapa Hotel. Phetchabun is a nice small city with not too far from the hotel (but too far to walk) a street along a kind of klong or lake with many restaurants and small pub's.
