chiang mai isaan
I have 2 weeks in Bangkok (Kreung Thep) and I want to see as much as possible. So should I take a train to Chiang Mai, Isaan, or stay in BKK since it’s my first trip to the city???

ive been to phuket,krabi,chiang mai, bkk,pipi island is good u can do snorkling feed the fish with bread so nice there…free buffet foods on one of the islands there…
Yes, I realize that Chiang Mai is in Northern Thailand, and not Northeast Thailand (the Isaan area). This post’s title is actually a query used by folks in search engines such as Google.
I am going to use it to capture as much interesting and informative material as I am able to dredge up over the several days in which I will be making an almost complete edit of this post.
I am commencing the edit on June 20, 2016; my target for its finish is June 23, 2016 [it actually took me until June 24, 2016].
Take your time and look around ─ something should catch your attention!

Northeast Thailand, or Isaan, has been called the “real Thailand” by many. It might or might not be, but it is definitely a place of less traveled roads. Those who enjoy the kinds of places these roads lead to will enjoy learning more about Isaan. Isaan Intro, written by a longtime Thailand resident, will help readers do just that. It will show them the people, towns, farms, and all the monuments and natural wonders that one finds in this vast, relatively unknown place. Travelers and anyone interested in Thailand will find this insightful yet practical and useful information, truly invaluable.

A focus on the sites of Asian interaction enables this volume to shed new light on the growing field of diaspora studies. Research on Asia’s many diasporas has enriched the older literature on migration to illuminate the links of kinship, affect, trade, and information that connect locations across Asia, and beyond. But where many recent works on particular diasporas have tended to look inwards – at how distinctive diasporic cultures maintained a sense of ‘home’ while abroad – the volume’s focus has been on how different diasporas have come into contact with each other in particular places, often for the first time. It also engages with research in the fields of urban studies and urban history. The articles develop the already rich historical literature on port cities across Asia – the quintessential sites of Asian cosmopolitanism – as well as more recent work on the ‘moving metropolises’ and ‘mobile cities’ of contemporary Asia.

ThailandThailand is very much a land of contrasting and diverse attractions, even though many first time visitors believe the only things to do here are sunbaking, feasting and partying on one of its infinitely popular islands. Admittedly, these are indeed blissful ways to spend an enjoyable week or month, yet the country of a thousand smiles has so much more to offer anyone who’s even remotely interested in scratching its exotic and relaxing surface. The most popular and visited of all the countries in Southeast Asia, Thailand offer a wide range of phenomenal attractions, from the natural, to the historical and cultural. The relative ease of transport between major hubs means you could start your adventure in cosmopolitan Bangkok, explore the hillside tribal area near Chiang Mai, discover the off-the-beaten-path wilderness of northeastern Isaan, and end your extensive journey by sailing through the exceptionally divine islands off the southern coastlines.
