Things to Wear/ Pack for Khon Kaen, Thailand- A quick check list!

Packing for any trip can seem stressful as you don't want to take the wrong things or run out of essentials. But fear not, just read through to get all your packing essentials into order.



Although Khon Kaen is among the major cities in Thailand, it is one of the more rural places located in the Isan Region. The city is located around 450 km away from the capital, Bangkok. Khon Kaen is a kid-friendly location, with many beautiful temples. 95% of the population being Buddhist, you will encounter many stunning temples throughout the country, and this region is no different. Wat Nong Wang, Wat Pa Saeng Arun, and Wat Thung Setthi are some of the popular temples to visit. If visiting with kids they will be thrilled with the two lovely parks, Bueng Kaen Nakhon Park and Dino Water Park. The former is found nearby lake Bueng Kaen Nakhon. The parkland area has lots of trees to provide shade and a cycling track. You can find quite a few lively markets and historical sites as well within Khon Kaen. The city can be visited anytime of the year, but the best time is ideally in December to January. With regard to accommodation, one can find many Khon Kaen hotels in Thailand such as the Avani Khon Kaen Hotel & Convention Centre.


Packing essentials

Khon Kaen can get very hot and dry. Certain months from June onwards one can expect rain. However, towards December the weather gets dry and humid. So it is important to pack light clothes, such as cotton t-shirts/shirts/tops in light colours, trousers, skirts, shorts, dresses etc. will do nicely. When visiting places of religious significance, it is important to dress appropriately, covering both shoulders and legs.
