thailand isan map
Here are some suggestions to refer to for various types of maps of the Isaan Region of Thailand, as well as for information relating to that particular third of the kingdom of Thailand:
- Thailand-Ticket.de: Northeast Thailand•The Isaan
- Thailand-Ticket.de: ISAN MAP – Nord-Ost Thailand Karte
- MapsOfWorld.com: Thailand Maps (the maps are very general in nature)
- Maps-Thailand.com (the maps are extremely general)
- EmbassyWorld.com: Maps Of THAILAND (more very general maps)
Concerning online maps, take note that as with any other developing nation, with each passing year in Thailand, there are always new roads and related infrastructure that are not going to be detailed on what may have been current maps that came out the year before. It is as ably explained in the Wikipedia article on Isan, and specifically in its sub-section Waterways:
In this region, rapids and variable flow make navigation difficult on the Mekong River, so large boat traffic is limited in connection with downriver areas. Bridges are rare because of the high cost of spanning the wide river; numerous passenger and vehicle ferries link its two sides. The Second Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge, spanning the Mekong between the cities of Mukdahan (Thailand) and Savannakhet (Laos), was completed and officially opened for traffic on 20 December 2006. Some new bridges, not included on the 2005 maps, have been built over smaller rivers and dams. Passenger and vehicle ferries also operate across some large reservoirs.
