Many Thailand travelers have heard about Bangkok, Pattaya, and Phuket, but few venture towards the northeast and head for the area know as Isaan. This really is in the north-east and composed of Khon Kaen, Korat, Udorn Thani and the others.
That is largely a rural area with several grain farms. It is also the home of several retirees who've settled down using their Thai woman and have made this their new home.
I only got to see this area briefly and was in Korat twice during exercise Cobra Gold. Working 12-16 hour day didnt allow enough time for sightseeing. But, I did realize that the cost of living was a lot less than the larger tourist towns and the folks were a heck of a lot friendlier.
I visited Khon Kaen for your first time in 2007 to see a lady that I met online. I instantly fell in love with the woman and also with the-city of Khon Kaen. In case you fancy to identify more on http://www.wtol.com/story/29887569/carrie-hartunian-smith-interviewed-on-a-livecast-to-discuss-whats-new-in-publishing, we know of millions of online resources you should think about investigating.
Khon Kaen is only a 55 minute trip from Bangkok departing from the old international airport Don Muang. The airport in Khon Kaen is quite small and only has two departure gates.
