The Truth About Isaan Girls

Last updated: November 2nd, 2016 | in Isaan | Thai Girls

Can you imagine Thailand without its Isaan people? Or let me put it another way: Do you even want to imagine this country without Isaan? Probably not. Why am I asking this? Well, it’s because you meet people from northeastern Thailand everywhere you go: The hotel receptionist in Koh Pha Ngan, the housekeeper at your apartment in …

There couldn’t be a better place to start a trip around Isaan than Nong Khai that’s right up on the border to Laos. The laid back town on the Mekong Riverbank has quite a lot of charm and you might even end up staying longer than planned when you fall in love with the scenic …

What’s your imagination of a perfect holiday in some off-the-beaten-track Isaan province? Plenty of activities to do and attractions to see during the day? Cheap and authentic local cuisine?

Nightlife & Thai Girls in Nong Khai

Last updated: August 15th, 2016 | in Isaan | Nightlife | Nong Khai | Thai Girls

If you are like me then you may have passed Nong Khai several times while on a (visa) trip to Vientiane, Laos, but never bothered to actually spend a couple of nights in this town. Well, it’s quite tempting to choose Udon Thani 60km down south as a stopover instead that has arguably more nightlife …

Ubon Ratchathani Highlights

Last updated: December 2nd, 2015 | in Isaan | Traveling | Ubon Ratchathani

When you’re cruising through lush rainforest on your motorcycle, past small villages and rice paddies and hear small children yelling “Falang! Falang!” every now and then: Welcome (back) to Isaan – “truly Thailand” if you want. It’s always great to get out of Bangkok for a while and even more so when I decide to explore …

There are so many places in Thailand that are completely off the radar of most Farangs yet have so much more to offer than they can imagine. Ubon Ratchathani is such a place. Quite strange actually, since it’s one of the big four cities in Isaan (along with Khon Kaen, Udon Thani and Korat). Now, what …

Roi Et Highlights

Last updated: August 3rd, 2016 | in Isaan | Roi Et | Traveling

When you meet Roi Et people in other parts of Thailand, they often make a joke and say they come from “L.A.” which is kind of Thai sense of humor as the “r” often sounds like a “l” in informal conversations and the English “a” is pronounced exactly the same way as the Thai “e” (เอ) and …

Nightlife & Thai Girls in Roi Et

Last updated: May 18th, 2015 | in Isaan | Nightlife | Roi Et | Thai Girls

One of Isaan’s best kept secrets? No doubts about that. You will be surprised by how much Roi Et has to offer after sunset. At least this is what I felt when I came here last week and found there is more nightlife than in more famous provinces in the region like Buriram. So don’t make the mistake …

The pace of life in Buriram couldn’t be more slow during daytime, but once sun has set and temperatures drop a little you will see that the 30,000 citizen town really comes to life. While there aren’t nearly as many nightlife areas and venues as compared to the neighbour provinces of Khon Kaen and Korat, …

Buriram Highlights

Last updated: November 24th, 2015 | in Buriram | Isaan | Traveling

Buriram might be one of the best kept secrets in Isan. While clearly minor to its famous neighbour provinces of Khon Kaen and Korat in terms of economic performance, transportation services, infrastructure, population and size, there are quite a lot of reasons why the 30,000 citizen town also known as the “Town of Happiness” is well worth …

Located 410 km northeast of Bangkok, the province of Buriram might be one of Thailand’s best kept secrets. It is not just home of one of Thailand’s most successful football club, Buriram United, the most modern race track in the country but also to the most significant Khmer site in Thailand. If you are planning …
