What to See and Do in Isaan
Northeastern Thailand, otherwise known as Isaan, is, to tourists at least, the country’s great unknown. The giant drought-prone area is the poorest part of Thailand and banner attractions are fewer here than in other regions. Nevertheless, its fascinating cultural makeup (it has more in common with Laos than other parts of Thailand), fiery cuisine, superb national parks, and entrancing Mekong River scenery make it well worth investigating.
