10.00 Wat Nongwang
Wat Nong Wang isthe most famous temple in Khon Kaen. Located south of the city on Klangmuang Road, it is an impressive building with its 9 floors showing a bit of the culture, tradition and history of the temple, Buddhism and monks.
This is a must-visit for any stay in Khon Kaen. Especially because in addition to the building and its delightful colorful paintings, each floor has a balcony with floor mosaics representing animals.And the more we climbed the floors, the more we have a beautiful 360 degree view over the city and Khon Kaen's lake(Bung Kaen Nakhon lake) Just opposite.
