isan map thailand
Thailand-Ticket.de offers the largest online map that I know of which displays the North-East Provinces of Thailand — otherwise known as the Isaan Region. There have been a few changes since it was copyrighted back in 2001, most notably being the creation of new Province Bueng Kan from the eastern portion of Nong Khai.
As Wikipedia says, this new Province came into being on March 23, 2011 — yet they still have not amended their Isaan map to account for it:
Isan returns 136 of the national parliament‘s 400 constituency MPs. In the 2005 election, the Thai Rak Thai party took 126 of these seats, with six for Chart Thai and two each for the Democrat party and Mahachon Party.
Although Wikipedia has not amended its Isaan map, it did include the new Province (#20) in the legend to the left of the map.
Since I have often enough dealt with the topic of maps in earlier posts and have nothing truly new to offer, perhaps I shall leave the matter at this. I will provide some links to those earlier posts, and also offer some other related references you may find of interest — this is being done in a June 19 (2012) post edit:

THAI LANGUAGE This well illustrated book is published in the THAI LANGUAGE (although the current translation has imperfections, but is readable. The descriptions of the many pictures are in English.). The story is ‘fiction based on fact’. Watcharaporn is a nineteen year-old rice farmer’s daughter from Isan in search of a handsome foreigner with money and influence to help her through her life and her family out of poverty. Michael is a middle-age expatriate financial professional from Europe and North America beginning a teaching career at a university in Bangkok. The two meet in the night life scene of Pattaya. An eventful romance begins, sharing a sense of excitement and adventure that takes the reader through the beauty and brutality of a mixed marriage in Thailand ending in suspense. The revealing story is based on both, fact and fiction, and is a must for Thais and Expatiates contemplating or finding themselves in a cross-cultural relationship.
Lady aus Isan (Originaltitel: “Lady of Isan,” 2004 ) ist erfrischend anders als die meisten Bücher, die ich über Thai-Farang-Beziehungen gelesen habe. Iuu ist eine 19-jährige Reisfarmerstocher aus Isan, dem Nordosten Thailands. Michael ist Universitätsdozent in Bangkok. Die beiden begegnen sich in der Nachtszene von Pattaya. Eine ereignisreiche Romantik beginnt. Das Buch beschreibt die Zärtlichkeit und die Brutalität einer Mischehe in Thailand, und den spannenden Ausgang. “Michael schreibt ehrlich und vom herzen über seine Erfahrungen, ohne Bitterkeit, Hass oder Schuldzuweisungen. Die meisten ausländischen Männer, die schlechte Erfahrungen in Thailand machen, weisen den Ladies die Schuld für ihren Verlust und ihre Schmerzen zu. Michael übernimmt für seine Probleme selbst die Verantwortung und zeigt uns, wie zwei Menschen aus unterschiedlichen Kulturen zusammen leben und glücklich sein können.” “Das Buch ist Pflichtlektüre für Ausländer, die sich in einer Liebesbeziehung mit einer Lady aus Thailand befinden, oder vorhaben, eine Beziehung einzugehen. Ein vollauf empfehlenswertes Buch.” Stu Alan, “The Grumpy Expat” 26. Oktober 2009
A19-year old rice farmer’s daughter from Isan meets a middle-age Canadian financial professional in the night scene of Pattaya. An eventful romance begins, sharing a sense of excitement and adventure in Thailand ending in suspense. “I couldn’t put the book down. I read it on a six and a half hour flight from Bangkok to Perth. I laughed – and I cried…” John Knight “Refreshingly different from most books that I have read about Thai/farang relationships. A thoroughly recommendable book.” Stu Alan

The mountains of northern Thailand constitute part of northern Thai identity. They inspire fear and awe, respect and love, curiosity and creative imagination. They define both the physical and mental landscape of northern Thailand. Drawing on the legendary histories of three mountains in the region-Doi Ang Salung Chiang Dao, Doi Suthep, and Doi Kham-coauthor Donald Swearer explores the various ways that mountains in northern Thailand are seen as sacred space, and therefore as an environment to be respected rather than exploited. The volume presents, in English translation, the stories associated with these sacred sites as recorded in the legendary chronicles, or tamnan, of the story of the Chiang Dao mountain and cave, the account of the enshrining of the Buddha relic on Doi Suthep, and the interwoven legends of the hermit Wasuthep, the demons Pu Sae and Ya Sae, the chief Wilangkha, and the queen Chamathewi. In preserving the fascinating folklore of these sacred mountains, the authors contribute to the preservation of the mountains themselves. Donald K. Swearer is the Charles and Harriet Cox McDowell Professor of Religion at Swarthmore College. Sommai Premchit is a consutant to the Social Research Institute, Chiang Mai University, and professor of sociology and anthropology at the Mahamkut Buddhist University, Lanna. Phaithoon Dokbuakaew is a researcher at the Social Research Institute, Chiang Mai University.
