One of the 4 major cities in the Isan Province of Thailand, Khon Kaen is the capital of Khon Kaen Province sitting 450km north-northeast from Bangkok in the land of smiles. The commercial and government hub of the region and where you will find the campuses of Raamangala University and the Khon Kaen University, that is the largest university in the northeast. With about 25,000 students running around the streets, the city is dynamic with a youthful exuberance. This is not really a tourist or a digital nomad must-do place to get to, but more a local enclave.
Known as an industrial center especially for the region's silk trade and a flourishing agricultural area, the city has played host to a number of regional conferences such as the ASEAN Regional Forum and United Nations meetings. Bisected by the "Friendship Highway", the road linking Bangkok to the Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge, the city is easy to navigate by car.
If you find yourself in Khon Kaen there are of course Buddhist temples, such as the Phra Mahathat Kaen Nakhon to take a few serene moments in. The museum buff can check out the Khon Kaen National Museum that was opened in 1972 displaying antiques, art pieces and archaeological finds from the region. There is even a skeleton of a "New Stone Age" man to gawk at, if you like looking at bones. You could join the locals sculling beer and munching on some Thai snacks at a local football game or spend a Sunday at the horse races rubbing shoulders with likeminded betting souls. The Ton Tann Night Market is worth investigating or if you can be bothered to hop 50km out of town, you will find the largest dam in the northeast, the Ubolrat Dam, to play in.
The ultimate is to have a long lunch at a prawn farm chilling out.
