The Phu Thai town of Renu Nakhon, 15km northwest of That Phanom, hosts a 35m-tall tâht that closely resembles the previous chedi built in That Phanom and is considered very holy. It's located in the temple Wat That Renu, which also hosts a good textiles market with locally made fabrics and clothes as well as silk and cotton from Laos and elsewhere in Thailand. There's no public transport. Túk-túk drivers in That Phanom ask 300B round trip.
