Khon Kaen Education and Travel Programs is located in the heart of Northeast, Thailand (Isaan). Like many businesses in Southeast Asia, KKETP is staffed primarily by family members. Our organization is committed to providing the Thai community we live in quality education and providing a safe, fun environment for visitors from abroad to be of service and experience the warm and welcoming Isaan culture.

We spent a great day & night at Little Box Hotel in Khon Kaen province, Thailand yesterday!
Earlier this month, Katt provided three tours. The first was for the venerable Sogan Rinpoche and his friend, Tenzin Lama. The second tour was for a very friendly group of Malaysian retirees led by Tan Sin Hoo. The third excursion was an overnight farming tour for the lovely Tove.
Book your tour with Katt soon and remember that she also teaches Thai language and the Isaan dialect.
Sightseeing tours and Thai language lessons are available. Our Khon Kaen forum is open for new registrations. For up to date news about Khon Kaen province and beyond, join us here: http://khonkaenforum.com
Unfortunately, it’s been a dry monsoon season and many farmers around Thailand don’t have enough water for crops. Fortunately, our little farm is on a river. Click here for more info…
Katt recently did two days of tours for American photo jounalist Taylor Weidman. Here’s links to the photoshoots he did while on tour with Katt: http://mashable.com/2015/09/24/transgender-muay-thai-fighter/#GhRJwao36gqS http://www.upworthy.com/meet-the-16-year-old-fashion-designer-whose-sustainable-looks-may-shake-up-the-industry
Katt is still available for Thai/Isaan lessons!
We launched khonkaenforum.com a few months ago and we’re switching to a new server. Hopefully, we’ll be back online very shortly.
First off, we’d like to wish everyone a happy new year! We hope 2015 brings everyone good health and prosperity. We are busy working (and playing) down at the river slowly creating the Isaan Culture Conservation Camp. Hopefully, we’ll see some of you there in the near future. Feel free to say hi to us at http://facebook.com/kketp
As part of our ongoing goal of expanding KKETP and benefiting our community, we are proud to announce the Isaan Culture Conservation Camp. Recently we purchased 2,000 square meters of land on The Chi River just outside of Khon Kaen City. Our aim is to provide hands on Isaan culture learning as well as have a place to have fun and relax. To see our current progress, visit us at http://youtube.com/1skyywalker and http://facebook.com/kketp.
Katt and Alex will be heading out to California on the last day of July and returning to Thailand at the end of August. Therefore, no tours are available in August. Additionally, Katt will not be able to do any face to face Thai language instruction, unless you’re in the San Francisco area. Katt’s online language students will be notified and should be able to continue learning as usual.
Speaking of Alex, check out his new haircut!
We’ve wanted to open a small, Mexican restaurant for many years now and recently it finally happened! We’ve been open for a few months now and things are gradually coming together. Recently, we’ve added pizza to the menu! Come by and say hi if you can.
We are happy to announce that we are converting our other home into a bed & breakfast. Actually, it’s a “bed & lunch” to be more specific! The cost is about 65 USD a night. Please enjoy the video.
