    The highlight is a nine-storey pagoda, Buddha or Phra mahathat Kaen Nakhon. There is very beautiful. Travel to measure due to attended the funeral at work.

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.
