Despite being Thailand’s largest region, Isan has been largely neglected by the foreign tourists who flock to Phuket and Bangkok. Isan is ethnically diverse, with Vietnamese and Lao cultural influences, and offers a slower-paced but sometimes more authentic version of Thailand than the bustling cities. Isan offers many amazing parks and wildlife refuges teeming with unique plants and animals, including Khao Yai, Pha Taem and Tat Ton National Parks. The Thai Ministry of Tourism and Sports hopes to turn Isan into the next tourist trap, though, so hurry up and see it before that happens!
