  • Phrathat Kham Kaen is our favorite temple in Khon Kaen city. Maybe we are old fashion however this historical temple gave us our sense of serenity being in a place of worship. We were rather unfortuna...  more »
  • This afternoon I went to visit this temple distant from town about 20 Km. The streets are quiet around them! The Phra That Kham Kaen is significant and highly revered by the local people, as it is believed to contain relics of the Buddha. The temple is located on the grounds of Wat Chetiyaphum. Other buildings on the grounds including an ubosot (ordination Hall. The entrance to the viharn is guarded by two White Lions. The top of the roofs are decorated with Golden ornamentation chofah representing the mythical bird Garuda. The Ubosot is a small and simple structure with a gabled façade beautifully painted. Its entrance is flanked by two multi tiered ceremonial umbrellas. There's a very peaceful atmosphere and there are interesting photos! The entrance is free! If you don't have a car you ask in the hotel cost and reservation of taxis that do not cost much here! Good visit!

Where to stay in Khon Kaen

Ranging from economical to five-star hotels, Kohn Kaen lodgings remain widely spread throughout the city. Although you can find rooms in the city center near popular attractions, rural hotels provide a more peaceful setting and treat tourists to a traditional experience. Expect to find lower prices than in Thailand's more popular tourist hotspots, but don't be surprised if a rural establishment provides you with a room lacking air conditioning and hot water.
