Khon Kaen-the Gateway to Isaan

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, 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.
