This dual carriageway road has been improved enormously. It goes through some interesting countryside at times, with many photo opportunities, and the surface is now good.

Highway 12 has been vastly improved in the last few years. Along the highway you will find a few waterfalls and national parks. Have travelled it a few times on family day trips to Khao Koh and Wat Prathat Phasornkaew.

Since the road was made two lanes each way it is a safer road. Many places to stop en route with the temple at Kao Khot worth an hours stop. Great views.
