Making this remote part of Nan Province more accessible for visitors is Bo Klua View, nestled in the foothills of Doi Phu Kha. This small resort is literally a breath of fresh air - it is around 700 metres above sea level - in an increasingly travel weary world. Overlooking the Mang River and the ancient salt well village of Bo Luang, the resort has been designed to blend with nature.

Boklua View offers guests a chance to experience a simple, rural lifestyle in a part of Thailand little known to tourists. Take in the quiet pace and rhythm of typical village days. Boklua View is owned and operated by Toun Upajak, an English speaking Thai who was born in Bo Klua. He is a qualified chef and worked with several Bangkok restaurants and hotels before returning home to set up Boklua View. He is supported by Australian partners and Boklua View is the only quality, private accommodation in the Doi Phu Kha National Park area. Emphasis in building and operating the small resort has been on using local labour and materials wherever possible and all staff are from the local hill tribes.

Boklua View is set in a magnificent part of Thailand and nearby activities and attractions tend to be nature based and range from visiting the salt extraction wells, to trekking to remote hill tribe villages (where the locals don’t get “dressed up” for the tourists), to easier jungle walks and adventurous rafting on the Wa River. You can also head north through rarely visited villages to the Thai/Laos border crossing and take a boat or mini van to the ancient Laos capital of Luang Prabang.

Rates vary with the season, but average 1650 bt per room for two people, including VAT and breakfast. An extra person in the room is 300 bt, including breakfast. Check in time is 1pm. Check out time is 12 noon.
Rooms without a deposit will not be held beyond 5pm unless notice of a late arrival is given.

Eleven simple, yet stylish bungalows are set around a terraced rice field and are fringed by National Park. All have been sited to offer privacy and to make the most of the views, over the Mang River, or to the nearby mountains of the Thai/Laos border. The bungalows are air conditioned
(it is seldom needed) and feature large verandahs to catch the breezes.
