Dan Sai Travel Guide

For most of the year this dusty village in the western part of Loei Province is pretty quiet. Surrounded with natural beauty, you will always find a warm welcome in Dan Sai and this is a good place to escape the tourist scene for a while and get to know the ‘real’ Thailand.

More than simply stunning scenery, fresh air and nature, Dan Sai is also home to Thailand’s most respected winery, the intoxicating Chateau de Loei Winery. This local winery contains a great restaurant where you can dine in style while sampling the best of Thailand’s wines.

A great time to visit is during the weird and wonderful Phi Ta Khon Festival, which is celebrated in June with large colorful masks and costumes. This extravagant three-day festival is traditional Thailand’s answer to Halloween and has to be seen to be believed.

Getting There & Away

Fly to the nearby airport at Loei (50kms away) from Bangkok and other parts of Thailand and then take a short bus ride through the countryside, with buses to Phitsanulok stopping in Dan Sai en route.
