Northeast Thailand - last travel frontier and gateway to Indochina

Panaporn Garden is only 3 km. Away from the Chi river which flows southward to join with the Mun river before seeking out to the Mekong River. Nature has blessed this Northeast plateau with a unique opportunity to become the gateway to Laos and Cambodia. The Mekong River winds southward marking the border between Laos and Northeast Thailand. In between these natural barriers‚ a culture and way of life has emerged that is known as "Isan". A rich mixture of Lao and Khmer influence emerges in the language while a love for fiery salads and spicy food is seen in the cuisine. Even though Isan is known for an unhurried life-style‚ its festivals are noted for their colour and zest.

The Northeast‚ through network of highways‚ provides the land bridge to explore Laos and beyond to the coastal resorts of Vietnam. The provincial town of Roi-et is typical heartland where for centuries life revolved around the single crop of rice planted in May and harvested in November. Yasothorn province covers the broad valley of the Chi river just 100 km before it joins the Mun River on the outskirts of Ubon Ratchathanee‚ a capital city of lower Northeast Thailand and a hour away from the Laotian town of Pakse. The area is rich in ancient heritage, culture and the magnificent Khmer castles and pre-historical archaeology which can be reached within an hour or two drive from Panaporn Garden.
