Khon Kaen

Khon Kaen

As the site of the northeast’s largest university and an important hub for all things commercial, Khon Kaen is youthful, educated and on the move. While it’s the kind of city that’s more likely to land on a best-places-to-live list than a traveller’s itinerary, there are more than enough interesting attractions and good facilities to make a stop rewarding.

Local Attractions

Wat Nong Wang

Down at the south end of the lake, Phra Mahathat Kaen Nakhon , the stunning stupa at the heart of this important temple, is Khon Kaen’s one must-see.

Wat Pho Ban Nontan

Just off the lake, this peaceful tree-filled temple and noted meditation centre predates the city and has a săh·lah like no other in Thailand.

Wat Pa Thama Uthayan

This peaceful temple, 10km north of the city, has many beautiful monuments, including a 23m-tall white walking Buddha image, spread across its vast grounds.

Khon Kaen National Museum

This interesting collection of artefacts spans prehistoric times to the present. Highlights are Ban Chiang pottery and a beautiful Dvaravati săir·mah (temple boundary marker) depicting Princess Pimpa cleaning Lord Buddha’s feet with her hair.

Phra Mahathat Kaen Nakhon

Down at the south end of the lake is Khon Kaen’s one must-see, Phra Mahathat Kaen Nakhon, a gorgeous nine-storey chedi at the heart of Wat Nong Wang.

Rim Bueng Market

This fun little market, in the shadow of Wat That, features food, secondhand clothing and paint-your-own pottery stalls.
