Doi Muser Hill Tribe Market Located on the roadside of the Tak – Mae Sot route (
Highway No. 105 ) around km 29.
Amazing Hill This hill is located at around Km 68 on the Tak – Mae Sot route. Here,
a car can be astonishingly seen going up the hill without switching on the engine.
A scientist gave an explanation that it was an illusion. The height of the hill was
measured to confirm that the way up the hill was lower than the way down. Hence,
a car that is seen climbing the hill is really moving towards the lower place. However,
no one can explain why such an illusion is seen.
Wat Phothikhun or Wat Huai Toei The interesting feature is the Ubosot ( ordination
hall ). The boat-like Ubosot has three storeys. The ground storey has no decoration.
Decorations were made to the walls, ceiling, and heads of the posts on the second
storey. On the third storey where religious ceremonies are performed, it was finely
decorated on the walls, posts, and ceiling, with the arts of bas-relief, painting,
glass inlaying, and gilding.
Wat Thai Watthanaram This is a temple of the Mahayana Buddhism ( Great Vehicle )
of the Thai Yai people. Inside the temple, there is Phra Phutthamahamuni, an imitation
image of the sacred Buddha image in Mandalay, Union of Myanmar, which gains great
respect from the people of Tak.
This temple is located at Mu 1, Tambon Ta Sai Luat, on the way to the Rim Moei border
market, just 500 meters from the Thai Myanmar Friendship Bridge. The temple was
originally known as Wat Thai Yai as the construction of the temple was greatly influenced
by Burmese culture and Mahayana Buddhism. Enshrined within the temple are a reclining
Buddha image and a marble Buddha image. In addition, on the second floor of the main
Viharn, a collection of Burmese musical instruments, including tuned drums and gongs
are on display.

of local products of Thailand and Myanmar, as well as a market of gemstones from
the Union of Myanmar.
