The Loei countryside is brimming with natural wonders, like Phu Kradeung and Phu Reua mountains -- just aching for your concrete-weary feet to traipse along their slopes. Or venture down to the charmingly rustic riverside town of Chiang Khan, where the mighty Mekong first reconnects with the Thai border after a long journey through the Lao hinterlands.
If it's entertainment you seek, look no further than Loei City, where you can take in a flick at the beautiful Amarin Theater, Loei's last and only movie theater. For just 60 baht you can slump down comfortably in the cushy plushness of the Amarin's recently upgraded seats and release you mind with a bit of projected bedazzlement.
Back the blue -- The Amarin Theater: proudly serving the people of Loei since 1977.
(Amarin tranlates to the god "Indra")
