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.

Food

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.

Thai Spa Philosophy and Treatments – To Healthy Living

Based on a philosophy that creates balance in the mind, body, and soul, Thai spas practice healing with age-old methods.

Philosophy

The Thai healing practices have been used for centuries now, passed down through each generation and its fame has spread to the Western nations too. Inner and outer beauty balance is what the goal is and every spa in Thailand strives to keep up the tradition, be it a tiny hole in the wall spas or a typical spa resort in Koh Phangan, the likes of Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan.

Spa Facial

From luxury facials to scrubs that remove dead skin cells, the treatments are purely natural, with uses of ingredients like cucumber, coconut, lemongrass, and jasmine.

Herbal Spa

Focused on soothing tensed muscles and relieving joint aches, the herbal spa treatments are done by using a heated compress to apply pressure on the aches and joints. Camphor, lemongrass, ginger, turmeric and kaffir leaves are the commonly used items in the compress.

Foot Spa

Thai foot spas use reflexology and trigger points on the feet and by using a tiny probe to apply pressure on the focal points, the treatments are used to cure everything from a headache to liver issues.
