kHonkaen city is in Isan(the collective term for the north east region)
I was born n Khonkaen, Its not so big and not a small town.its so quite a new town.no traffic and still good polution.also peoples are very kind and friendly.make me always  love my hometown

Isan is rich in nature scenery ancient temples and archaeological.

A major sorce of local wisdom in Silk production is in Amper Chonnnnabot where excellent Madmee silk is delicately woven by hand using tiedye techniques

Delicious Isan food is famous for pungency and choice of ingredient sticky rice. The very spicy but unavoidable papaya salad(Somtum), grilled chicken and meats.
you can see the local picture in website..
