Last updated: April 1st, 2019 | 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: December 11th, 2018 | 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 …

Buriram Highlights

Last updated: December 11th, 2018 | in Buriram | Isaan | Traveling

Buriram might be one of the best kept secrets in Isaan. While clearly minor to its famous neighbor 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 …

Watching a Thai Premier League Match in Buriram

Last updated: February 12th, 2020 | in Buriram | Isaan | Traveling

Buriram might not be one of the “Big Four Cities” in Isaan but when it comes to football it’s the number one by far.
