  • Kamphaeng Phet National Museum
    3 stars

    This large and rather dusty museum contains the usual collection of artifacts.

    Around 20 km further south past Khlong Lan village, Route 1117 ends at Mae Wong National Park -- not to be confused with Mae Wang National Park in Chiang Mai province.
