General information about the province of Sisaket

Province capital: Sisaket
Name in Thai: ศรีสะเกษ

Location on map


Province of region Northeastern Thailand (Isaan)

Sisaket, nestled in the southeastern corner of the Isan region, is a province known for its rice fields, picturesque mountains and Khmer heritage that offers an authentic glimpse of Thai rural life while preserving its historical treasures.

One of the jewels of Sisaket is the temple of Prasat Sa Kamphaeng Yai, a complex which testifies to the historical influence of the Khmer Empire in the region. Set among agricultural landscapes, these sandstone and laterite temples stand as silent guardians of Thailand's ancient history. The fine sculptures and imposing architecture offer visitors a glimpse of Khmer art and culture. While one of the curiosities of the province is its temple of millions of bottles.

The culture and traditions of Sisaket are also manifested through its festivals, notably the traditional rocket festival, which is held every year to mark the start of the rainy season. This spectacular event, combining local beliefs and entertainment, brings communities together in a colorful and emotional celebration. Even if the best known take place in Yasothon and Kalasin, homemade rocket festivals are a very present tradition in Isan.

Personally, I really like the city for its atmosphere of a small, quiet provincial town with its night market along the railway line.
