Located in North East Thailand, Roi Et is a peaceful corner of Thailand that is on the road less travelled for many visitors and expats. This laidback province is best known for the large standing Buddha of Wat Buraphaphiram, which is the largest of its kind in Thailand. There are also a few natural attractions including Phalanchai Lake.
While Roi Et is much smaller than provinces such as Bangkok, it should not be overlooked in terms of history and culture. In terms of getting around, Roi Et has an airport with cheap daily flights to Bangkok.
