6 Places to Visit in Khon Kaen - Exploring the Becoming Destination!

Khon Kaen is fast becoming a massive sensation among many travellers considering its remarkable sceneries, the impeccable variety of wildlife, blissful temples and its abundance of serene lakes and reservoirs. Here are 6 of the best places to visit when in Khon Kaen.


Khon Kaen National Museum

To get a taste of their rich history and culture, a visit to the Khon Kaen National Museum comes highly recommended. It features a collection of artefacts running back to pre-historic times of which some of the highlights belong to the Ban Chiang-era. The depictions within the museum in terms of the household and agricultural aspects of life in Khon Kaen are a close representation of what you could expect to see in the countryside. Its location is ideal and is less than a mile away from luxury accommodation options such as Avani Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Centre.


Wat Thung Setthi

As you may already know, temples in Thailand are popularly referred to as ‘Wat’ and in quite ample in this heavily Buddhism-influenced country. Wat Thung Setthi stands out among the many others given its unusual exterior outlook; a white, gold and blue themed colours as opposed to the typical gold and red-coloured temples. The sense of tranquillity and calmness is no surprise in this bountiful establishment and could be described as addictive even.


Dino Water Park

Of course, many a hotel in Khon Kaen Thailand have their own entertainment and fun activities mapped out for themselves, but you would not complain about all the extra fun-in-the-sun at the Dino Water Park. The biggest of its kind in the North-Eastern Thailand, this water park is managed by a prominent Turkish brand and is better than everything you can ever imagine; complete with 9 fun zones, 7 fun water attractions and over 20 different water slides! The park puts grins across faces of the young and the old alike and at their absolutely affordable prices, should dare not be missed!


Phu Pha Maan National Park

This fascinating could well be equalized to the grand canyon of Thailand; with its towering limestone cliffs spread over like a grand curtain. To add to the magnificent limestone cliffs, there are also numerous inhabited caves with roomy chambers, caves so massive you could literally drive into it, ancient paintings on cave walls and even some remarkable hidden waterfalls spotted among the many limestone cliffs.


Wat Nong Wang

Wat Nong Wang is one of the most popular temples in Thailand and is an impressive building spanning 9 floors and its impeccable design is unique in that it portrays the nations culture, history and the philosophy that is Buddhism. Its fascinating colourful paintings and floor mosaics are absolute showstoppers of course in addition to the magnificent 360-degree view of the city across Khon Kaen’s infamous lake right opposite.


Ton Tann Market

This night market surely lives up to the expectations of travellers with its absurd variety of delicious food stalls and hearty entertainment segments in session most nights! Quite famous for its cheaply priced accessories, clothing and sumptuous foods, the energy of hustling Thailand majestically kicks-off in the evenings and both locals and travellers alike are enthralled by the feast that is cooking!
