Dun Lamphan No Hunting Area 

        Maha Sarakham Province is situated in the northeaster region of Thailand, which is popularly known as Isan. The provincial capital is the province's namesake and situated on the banks of Chi River.


        The city of Maha Sarakham is popular for its number of colleges and has long been known as the regional educational center. This distinction has won the city the name Taksila of Isan. Taksila was the educational center in ancient India. The city has a student town feel and until recently the infrastructure was not well-developed. However, due to growing student population, things are now changing and visitors can now enjoy things which were earlier not present including hotel, modern department store, market, cinemas, and restaurants. However, be prepared to use bicycle rickshaws to get from one historical or cultural site to another if you have not brought your own car.

Although there is no railway station or airport, Maha Sarakham is well connected by road to Khon Kaen and Roi Et, which have airports.

        A visit to Maha Sarakham province will be incomplete without visiting Dun Lamphan No-hunting Area, which is located around 60 kilometers from the provincial city. The area has two forests, namely deciduous dipterocarp and peat swamp forests. There is a stream that flows all around the year.
