Isan, The Unexplored Thai Province- A Secret Retreats journey -
Owner of Supanniga Home, native of Khon Kaen and passionate about the culture of Isan, expert in Silk, gardening and Tea Master, Khun Phajongkit is unveiling the most unknown and mysterious province of Thailand.
Often overlooked, Isan is the largest and most authentic province of Thailand, untouched by mass tourism. Bordered by the Mekong, natural boundary with Laos and Cambodia, Isan does not have many tourist infrastructure, English is not widely spoken, so the province has been preserved and the real attraction is its authenticity. With mostly farmlands and little towns, we invite you here to discover the Thai daily life in the countryside, its traditions, its food, some of the nicest National Parks and bucolic roads along the Mekong
