Bike Ride to Khok Kruat

Khok Kruat is a small town about 11K (6 miles) due west of my home. Although it is rapidly being absorbed by metropolitan Korat, it still retains a measure of individuality. The road I take parallels the main highway, but is relatively uncrowded and still rural enough to still be lined with rice fields. There are many small villages along the way.

Not many of these old wooden stations left.

Only four trains a day stop in Khok Kruat, two "up" (one to Surin and one to Khon Kaen) and two "down" (toward Bangkok). The photo is of Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, daughter of the King, pictured at the Hua Hin railway station.

Khok Kruat still has many nice old wooden buildings.
