Bo Klua is a small town with a fascinating attraction-- the salt wells that you can visit and where you can learn how the process of salt extraction actually works. It is definitely worth a half hour of your time.

It was my fourth visit to the salt wells in Bo Klua. It is impressive every time! The salt is tasteful. For more than 800 years, people have got salt from the well. The well is about 20 meter deep.
