Travel Thailand, Khon Kaen

Khon Kaen is a bustling, prosperous town in the heart of Isan. Established in 1783, Khon Kaen is today the centre for regional development projects and home to the Northeast's largest university.

Khon Kaen is 450 km from Bangkok and covers an area of 10,886 square kilometres. It has 20 districts and three sub-districts. Khon Kaen is a tourism and transport hub for the heartland and northern provinces of Isan. In addition to its modern airport, the city is a busy junction on Highway 2 and an important station on the northern railway line to Nong Khai.

The province has plenty of tourist attractions to keep visitors occupied, but Khon Kaen geographically is the most central gateway in the region, offering convenient links to the northern and central provinces. In the east, the Mekong River at Nakhon Panom is 295 km from Khon Kaen. Nong Khai is 213 km to the north while Nakhon Ratchasima is 219 km to the south.  

Khon Kaen Attractions:
Tourist attractions in Khon Kaen vary from natural scenery to religious and archaeological sites.

Bung Kaen Nakhon, a lake in the southern part of town, is popular spot with food stalls selling local specialities such as som tam (spicy papaya salad) and kai yang (grilled chicken.)

Khon Kaen National Museum has a large collection of artifacts discovered at archaeological sites at Ban Change and Fa Daet Song Yang in Kalasin province.
Phra That Kham Kaen is a 19-metre-high chedi at Wat Jediyaphum about 30 km from town. According to a legend, two monks on their way to Nakhon Phanom province spent the night at the site of the current temple where they observed a dead tamarind tree. Upon returning, they saw the tree had miraculously come back to life. They told the villagers to build a chedi over the "kham Kaen" (hardwood log). The province derives its name from this chedi.  About 50 km north-west of Khon Kaen is the Ubol Ratana Reservoir. Named after the eldest daughter of HM the King and Queen, it is the biggest multipurpose dam in the Northeast, generating electricity for eight neighboring provinces. There is a restaurant with view of the dam and reservoir. Boat trips are available too. More
