Be responsible

Don’t be a typical tourist who wants to do things for the sake of a great picture. Elephant rides, tiger temples, snake farms, and other forms of attractions that uses animals for entertainment should be boycotted.

Book early

Whether you’re looking for waterparks, hotels or anything else, book well in advance. If you’re staying at a hotel in Khon Kaen, look for some great deals. Booking in advance at properties such as AVANI Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Centre is recommended as they tend to fill up fast during peak season.


Despite wanting to eat the “iconic” list of Thai food; head to the nearest street stall or roadside restaurant and try some other type so less common food. Your taste buds will not be disappointed.

The City you Must Visit when in Thailand – The Best of the Lot

Thailand is known for its unique blend of culture and modern attractions, and of all the cities, we have the best one for you here.

Nong Kai

Located along the Mekong River banks, this picturesque city will take you back in time, to the old worldly charms of a true Thai town. The place is known for its powerful cultural identity and the friendly people who call it their home. The views of the buildings, river and misty hills beyond are enough to make any tourist want to stay back in the place.


If you are staying in the major cities, take a short vacation within one, step out of your hotel in Khon Kean, be it a city hotel like AVANI Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Centre, for instance, and visit Nong Kai. Try to visit the city in time for one of its historical annual festivals, like the Mekong Fireballs, Rowing Festivals, Anou Savari Festival or Thai New Year. The place comes to life and people from all over the country travel to be a part of these celebrations that happen throughout the year. Apart from these events, you can visit the Wats, the best ones being Wat Pho Chai and Wat Khaek.

Travel Around Khon Kaen Thailand

Located about 500km away from Bangkok, Khon Kaen is a part of Thailand’s northeast region and has seen rapid growth in the past few years.

Being the educational centre of the vicinity, Khon Kaen is a traveller’s base if they want to visit the places around it. Finding a hotel in Khon Kaen is an easy job as they have everything from budget hotels to luxury and business hotels like AVANI Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Centre.

In comparison to the ancient towns in Thailand, Khon Kaen is relatively new as it was founded just two centuries ago. Research and archaeological digs in and around town have revealed that though Khon Kaen didn’t start functioning as a town until recently; the artefacts prove that Khon Kaen has a rich history in ancient civilisation, especially when it comes to endemic dinosaurs.

Over the years, people of various cultures have settled in the area and in the early 12th century, the Khmer Empire expanded its ruling and took over Khon Kaen too. The current traditions and norms of Khon Kaen have been carved by people over the centuries and is a surely delightful place to visit when in Thailand, especially if you get to see the silk festival, Full moon festivals and more.
