Khon Kaen is the commercial, administrative, and educational center of the Northeast that is often used by travelers as a base for visiting many parts of upper Isan. Khon Kaen is well known for the high quality silk that is produced in the province and nominated as the export center for trade throughout the Indo-China Region. Both Laos and Vietnam have consulates in Khon Kaen to process visa applications. Khon Kaen also contains the largest university in the northeast, Khon Kaen University.
Prehistorically, this town occupied the plateau for thousands of years until the Ancient Khmer Empire expanded its presence into the area in the 12th century and ruled it for some time. The ancient cultures, traditions, and historical sites in this area have all contributed to shaping the people and culture.
Khon Kaen features fine eateries and comfortable hotels, beautiful nature, a variety of animal parks and a number of spectacular national parks and some fascinating historical and archaeological sites.
