  • An area: 168,000 square kilometers
    (more than 30% of Thailand's total land mass)
    Contains 19 of Thailand's 76 provinces.

    The home of the world's oldest Bronze Age civilization.
    (Dating back more than 5,000 years.)

    And more than 1,000 years ago, I-san's southern most provinces formed Angkor empire.

    I-san is bordered to
    the north and east by the mighty Mekong River,
    the south largely by Cambodia.

    I-San is rapidly gaining economic because it opens of international border crossings linking with Laos and Cambodia. A case in point is the Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge spanning the Mekong River at Nong Khai, diagonally opposite the Laotian capital of Vientiane.
