A French couple who quit their job to travel the world has made a pitstop in Khon Kaen, Thailand to study Thai massage, in addition to vacationing.
They began the Asian leg of their world tour in China, before moving on to Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Khon Kaen, Thailand.
They said Thailand has been a friendly country where they feel welcomed.
While Khon Kaen is a large province, trekking and biking have been easy and safe to enjoy.
According to one senior provincial officer, many Western tourists come to Thailand to learn about their traditional arts, including on cooking Thai food, apart from vacationing.
