Korat is a vibrant bustling place to live and work, with Night markets that go on until the early hours of the morning. They say Korat will be the second Bangkok and is already expanding every year. New highways are being built along with multiple shopping centres, schools and hospitals.
When it comes to food and eating, Korat has so much choice. There is Thai street food is served on every corner 24 hours a day.
To the untrained eye, Korat could easily be mistaken for Bangkok, However Korat holds many beautiful surprises both natural and man made.
