Khon Kaen City Pillar
Definitely ranked in one of Khon Kaen’s top ten places to visit, the Chao Por Lak Mueang Shrine (Khon Kaen City Pillar) is like the first stop you should make once you’re in the city. Renowned from the sacred story, this place of worship is located in the city center to allow anyone to come and pay homage. It’s also very serene in the morning, yet astounding at night when the decorative lights shine bright across the area.
Location: Sri Chan Rd., Nai Mueang sub-district
inch & ounce
At one of Khon Kaen’s very laid-back cafés that oozes out minimalistic aesthetics, you wouldn’t expect the baristas to be so serious (only for their creations, FYI) about the coffee that they name the café “inch & ounce” after the units needed to make a perfect cup. Come for the variety of caffeine-based beverages and stay for a relaxing hangout sesh with your friends or to complete that projects. inch & ounce is also praised for their homemade goodies like the Dark Beer Chocolate Cake and Sweet Potato Cheesecake.

A favorite of any generations, Mama Big is also one of the restaurants frequently recommended by Khon Kaen townies. Aside from the great location and ideal venue where you can escape from the heat in the air-conditioned, two-storeyed shop; the choices of food here are also lovely. Take your pick from Thai, Chinese, western, fusion and even vegetarian dishes. Or you can play it safe with Mama Big’s top-hit orders: Spicy Spaghetti (the Thai name for this dish is Angry Sea Spaghetti), Hong Kong Noodle, and Baked Rice with Chestnut.
