The journey makes stops at various locations throughout the region where worship of the legendary serpent can be performed. The Udon Thani office of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is in charge of organizing the route. The provinces of Udon Thani, Nong Khai, and Bueng Kan all feature religious destinations that can be visited by travelers along this route. From December through February, it is anticipated that the new campaign would produce approximately 120 million Thai Baht. The statement was made by the director of the TAT’s office in Udon Thani “We present a travel path that links with distinctive local identities in order to provide travelers with a travel experience that is rich in meaning,”

Visitors will stop at temples in the provinces of Udon Thani and Nong Khai while they are on their journey. They will go to Don Pho Island and the Naga Cave while they are in Bueng Kan. Additionally, they will visit a shrine. Don Pho Island is a small island in the middle of a swamp that is home to a shrine dedicated to the worship of Nagas. There is a rock within the Naga Cave that has ridges on it that appear like the scales of a snake. The rock at Bueng Kan has been successful in attracting tourists. At one point earlier in this year, ninety percent of the available rooms in the hotels located in the Bueng Khong Long district were being used. Within Phu Langka National Park is where you’ll find the Naga Cave.

People in the northeast of Thailand believe that a legendary serpent called the Naga is responsible for bringing rain to their crops. According to a mythology that is told in the northeastern part of Thailand, the water angel gave the command to have Nagas play in a lake so that water would pour onto people’s crops as rain. The myth of the Naga carries significant weight in the stories of northeastern Thailand, as well as in the mythology of various cultures from the southeast and south Asia. People in the northeast of the country perform an annual ritual in which they launch rockets into the sky in an effort to rouse the Naga and encourage them to shower their crops with rain. At the beginning of this month, the Cabinet made the announcement that the Naga will be utilized as a symbol of Thai culture in order to boost the creative economy of the nation. Officials in northeast Thailand’s Naga province are introducing an intriguing new travel route in an effort to grow the region’s tourism industry.
