The Lost Lotteries (ปฏิบัติการกู้หวย) is the first film from Netflix’s latest “Tee Thai Tee Mun” lineup, produced by GMM Studio. The film was released globally in more than 190 countries and showcases authentic Thai–style comedy with a tint of drama, romance, and action flair.
The movie begins in Nong Khai, a rural province with a simple way of life where a single mother, “Toi” lived before giving birth to a son. When she later moved to Bangkok to work as a lottery ticket vendor, it marked the starting point of this adventurous story. Nong Khai is a province with lots of beautiful natural sights, especially the sea of fog which is considered one of Nong Khai’s highlights.
Nong Khai has 2 beautiful sea of fog viewpoints that attract many tourists.
The first sea of fog viewpoint is Wat Pha Tak Suea in Sangkhom District at the Laos-Thailand border. This temple is situated up on a mountain, where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Mekong River. It is especially beautiful at sunrise and sunset when the cotton-like fog is thick. Apart from being a Buddhist sanctuary, Wat Pha Tak Suea is also a popular tourist attraction thanks to its breathtakingly beautiful nature. Another highlight here is a skywalk made from glass that allows visitors to get even closer to nature and absorb the beauty of the Mekong River.
Another sea of fog viewpoint is the newly opened Pha Chom Mok. Previously known as Pha Hin Taek, this cliff-top viewpoint enables visitors to experience a 180-degree panoramic view that includes a beautiful valley in the Sangkhom district and the mighty Mekong River, with a picturesque mountain range in Laos in the background. The best time to visit Pha Chom Mok is in the morning, especially during the cool season, because this is the time when a majestic sea of fog blankets the hill and the valley in its misty shroud. Visiting during sunset is also recommended because watching the sun go down behind the mountains creates a beautiful twilight.
