What's ISAN ?

Derived from a Sanskrit word, “Ishan” (north east direction), Isan is a commonly used word to describe the beautiful northeastern plateau of Thailand. Bordered by the famous Mekong River, Isan is situated next to Lao People's Democratic Republic and Kingdom of Cambodia. The region is known and loved for its strong family ties and lively cultures seen in upbeat music, memorable festivals and simple traditional clothing. Noted for their sincere hospitality, Isan people welcome guests with open hearts and fun loving spirits.
