  • During our visit to Khon Kaen, we couldn't miss this temple constructed nine-story pyramid-shaped. We climbed to the top and from there there is a superb view of the Lake and the city of Khon Kaen. A visit not to be missed.

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.
