    There is a nice temple with great view over the city. Don't remember the name though nor where it is. But I think it's worth a visit! It's very different from most other Thai temples!

    There is also a lake/park in the city, nice to walk along in the evening.

    If you have enough time to get out of the city and if you want to see a nice forest, go to Namphong National park!

    thanks!!! i'm already done with the trip, but i'm planning on the next trip back to Khon Kaen again VERY soon

    had a great time there!!! i stayed in Kosa Hotel, which was kinda ok, had a "roach hotel" setup behind the tv (to trap cockroaches), and they were sold out of internet cards 1 night (which REALLY pissed me off), but other than that, i loved how the Tukcom shopping center is directly across the street from there, with TONS of awesome places to eat

    also VERY near U-Bar, and also 5min tuk tuk ride to the market

    That temple from maipenrai99 's above posting is Ҹҵ蹹 ( Pra Maha That Kean Nakhon) . If you prefers to see the nature, طҹ觪ҵ - پҹ Phu Kao - Phu Pan Kam National Park also good to visit too. Especially of to see the sun set above the Ubonrat Dam there.Please follow this link for more details of Phu Kao - Phu Pan Kam National Park. Also at Nongbua Lumphu village, there's historical park of prehistoric cave paintings and dinosaur's footprint.

    Wahh from my re-viewing on your posted. You has only 40 minutes each way. You may couldn't visit at Phu Kao - Phu Pan Kam National Park and prehistorical park though.Uhm ! the interesing place to visit in Amper Muang are - 1. Kukeaw 2.Pra Maha That Kean Nakhon 3. Khon Kaen National Museum 4. Bueng Kan Nakhon ( Kan Nakhon lake)..... Let try, and hopefully you'll enjoy traveling there..Good luck.

    I use to live at Non Sang (opposite side of Lake Ubonrat) when it was only accessable by boat, although there is a road there now. Its a beautiful place and the lake is huge. Well worth a look if you have the time.
