Chiang Mai? Bangkok? Phuket? Been there, done that.
Those looking for a piece of Thailand that's still largely unexplored by the international market should head for the northeast region, referred to as Isaan.
This vast section of Thailand is equipped with excellent infrastructure that includes several domestic airports and a range of upmarket hotels.
You know that sticky rice and papaya salad that's all the rage in trendy New York restaurants? Here's where it comes from. Along with plenty of other fantastic dishes that are among the country's best -- provided you can handle a bit of spice.
It's impossible to see it all in one visit so you'll have to pick and choose.
There are also ancient Khmer ruins outside Buriram, mountainous national parks in Loei and Bronze Age artifacts in the UNESCO-listed Ban Chiang Archeological Site.
And that's just scratching the surface. You'll just need to come back for more.
