This short cheap tour package of North Eastern Thailand ventures into the region collectively known as Isan which is made up of 19 provinces most of which never see a western tourist from one year to the next.
This is real Thailand which makes for a fascinating look at local culture away from the tourist hordes. While all Baktrax tours go out of the way to show you the local culture going to Isan takes this to another level again.
The famous Thai smile will only get wider as the locals hardly know what a tourist is. They will be just as interested in you as you in them. Very little English is spoken in the area so practice your charades.
The one particular highlight really worth stressing is the local food markets. It really is eye popping stuff for first timers. You won’t see these type of markets where the tourists only go. Whether dedicated markets or roadside street vendors. This is a real Thailand foodie experience at a fraction of tourist restaurants prices also..
While this tour will be fascinating on it’s own it would also be the perfect add-on after doing one of our other cheap small group tours. Dive even deeper into the local culture.
(3 star hotel x 2 nights, 2 star hotels x 6 nights).
Have more time to experience Laos also then a similar 15 day tour is; https://www.baktrax.com/small-group-tours-thailand/isan-insects-laos-small-group-tour
Expect to be amazed by another Thailand unknown to mainstream tourism. It really is another, even better, world compared to the regular tourist ghetto’s.
Expect locals only on local buses, markets and food unlike anywhere else in the country.
Expect some local tourist attractions in Roi Et at least, to discover, before one of the most amazing undercover food night markets in the country.
Expect insects among all the other mind-boggling choices.
YOU REALLY ARE IN THAILAND! Most tourists are not.
