Roi Et (ร้อยเอ็ด) is a town in Isaan. Roi Et town is built around a large artificial lake, Bung Phlan Chai, where a large, walking Buddha stands on a small island in its center.
Roi Et is both a city and a province in the mid-northeast Thailand. Established over 200 years ago, it used to be a very large and glorious city named Saket Nakhon having 11 city gates and 11 satellite cities or subordinated communities under its rule. Modern development has replaced the ancient civilization, and it is hard to find traces of the old.
