Thailand City Guide

North East Thailand

The Land of Smiles
“Visitors are greeted at the airport with a sign saying ‘Welcome to the Land of Smiles’ – and it’s not just because of the friendly locals. From the azure blue of the sea and dazzling white of the sandy beaches to the verdant green of the jungle and gleaming gold of the temples, the colours of Thailand are dazzling.”

North East Thailand

North East Thailand, also known as Isan, is home to almost a third of Thailand’s population. While it may be the country’s least visited region it is gradually gaining popularity as tourist area – and also as a quiet haven for expats living in the bustling cities.

Life here centres around the rural farming communities, and it certainly feels quieter, slower and more remote here compared to areas such as Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. Key attractions here are the ruins of the Khmer Empire and the beautiful landscape, including parts of the Mekong River Valley and the region’s 24 national parks.
