Roi Et exceeded my expectations, with a good hotel, Thanintorn Green Park, some excellent restaurants,eg White Elephant, Dal Perugino, Buddy Bar and night spots with live music, eg Buddy Bar, Boozer and Pavilion 101
We attended the Bun Phawet religious festival. It was a wonderful experience especially the first night outdoor performance of the Vessantara Jataka by the local university students - first class in all aspects.
The second night performance is in a kantoake dinner venue - difficult to photograph the performance unlike the pervious night's performance.
Roi Et is bigger than I thought and has more to do than I thought, I would recommend anybody to go there for a few days.
