Suan Thung Uncle (Loong) Pee
Suan Thung Loong Pee (Uncle Pee’s Garden) is a resort located in Kham Talay Soh (Kam Thale So), about 15 kilometers west of Korat. The resort is situated on over 100 rai of land which includes beautiful lotus ponds and rice fields. There are two restaurants (one air con and the other open-air), several cottages, and an OTOP shop. The restaurant has an extensive Thai menu. Off-menu ordering (including Western food) is available. The open air restaurant is chock full of antiques and other objects of interest. Although the design is a bit eclectic, one’s eyes never lack for something interesting to observe. The food is excellent. The restaurant is open daily for breakfast until late.
Update by admin: The restaurant opened at the beginning of 2009. Uncle Pee used to be a ‘landscape architect’ and that explains all the beautiful gardens of this place. You can eat at the entrance, in any of the restaurants (air con is the OTOP center) or even beside a lake.
