A travel journal
to Thailand by SeenThat
Quote: Hiding behind a thick, cold mist during the cold season or bubbling under a sudden monsoon rain, the Mekong River is always an exciting place to visit. Traveling along it in Thailand means entering deep into Isaan and getting to know the most untouched part of the Thai culture.
Regarding the climate, Isaan is one of the hottest zones in the kingdom. Thus even in the cold season, there is no necessity to bring hot clothes for the trip. The zone is humid, especially in its western side, and in the monsoon season, so bringing some protection is essential. The area is not in a malaria-infested zone, but nearby, in the Laotian city of Savannakhet, there were a few cases of Dengue Fever in the last years, as a precaution I recommend to bring a DEET containing mosquito lotion.
