          Dwelling on the banks of Bueng Phlan Chai Lake, Roi Et Province is a prosperous and bustling province in the northeastern Thailand. Its history dates back to 200 years.

          Bueng Phlan Chai is the most prominent tourist destination in Roi Et. The delightful surroundings around this large artificial lake are worth a glimpse.

Adventure lovers can enjoy different water sports in the lake while tourists can relax on the white sandy beach.
