General information about the province of Kalasin

Province capital: Kalasin
Name in Thai: กาฬสินธุ์

Location on map


Province of region Northeastern Thailand (Isaan)

The province of Kalasin is located in Isan, the northeastern part of Thailand. It is renowned for its cultural heritage, its natural landscapes, its traditional communities... and its dinosaurs. It is bordered by Sakon Nakhon to the north, Mukdahan to the east, Roi Et to the south and Maha Sarakham to the west. Its climate is typically tropical, with high temperatures and a rainy season from May to October.

Popular attractions in Kalasin include the Sirindhorn Museum and its dinosaurs, the Rongsi Market, Wat Phuttha Nimit, the best known in the province, the superb Wat Wang Kham and a few other temples. On the craft side, visitors can also discover local culture and artisans, such as weaving, by going to the Ban Phon Phraewasilk weaving Village.

The best time to visit Kalasin is during the dry season, from November to February, but personally, I like to travel through Isan in the middle of the rainy season (June to mid-August). Of course, it rains more and more often but nature and the countryside are so much more beautiful precisely thanks to the rain. The province also organizes several events throughout the year, including a rocket festival which is the most famous in the country after Yasothon.

When it comes to cuisine, Kalasin offers a variety of traditional Thai dishes, including kaeng khiao wan (Thai green curry), laab (spicy meat salad), and som tam (spicy green papaya salad). .
