Central City of Khon Kaen

Central City of Khon Kaen

Khon Kaen, a pleasant city in Thailand’s Northeast region. Despite the location msl altitude (above sea level) is almost the same as the City of Bogor in West Java (which is about 100 meters), winter here is much more cold. This is possible because the city of Khon Kaen is located in the greater latitude than Bogor, which is about 16 degrees North (Bogor on 6.5 degrees south latitude). While visiting this city in mid-January 2009, the temperature ranged from 12 to 18 Celsius. City of Khon Kaen is also the capital of Khon Kaen province and the District Khon Kaen. The city is also known as an important city in Thailand’s silk trade.

What’s interesting from the city ..?

Visitors are very crowded. Which came not only among young people, but also the family entourage.
