Tortoise Village The villagers keep many tortoises as their mutual pets. The brownish yellow shelled tortoises, called Tao Phek in local dialect, always travel around in the village to be fed.

How to get there: from downtown Khon Kaen, motorists can drive via Highway 12 ( Khon Kaen

Chum Phae ) for ten kilometres then turn left to Highway 2062 ( Khon Kaen-Mancha Khiri ) for

another 54 kilometres. The entrance  to the  tortoise  village is on  the left at  Ban Kok, two

kilometres before Amphoe Mancha Khiri. It is easy to notice with two tortoise replicas on the

roadside opposite to Wat Si Sumang. Turn left through Ban Kok, the tortoise village is 50 metres

away.
