About Travel to Ubon Ratchathani
Ubon Ratchathani is a fairly large city with over 80,000 permanent residents located in the east of Thailand’s Northern Eastern Region. Ubon Ratchathani is a long way from Bangkok and other major tourist destinations such as Pattaya and Chiang Mai and as a consequence receives relatively few foreign visitors.
The majority of foreign visitors who come to Ubon Ratchathani do so on route to Pakse in Southern Laos. Pakse is the closest major town to the popular 4,000 Islands Region of Laos as well as the access point for visiting the Bolaven Plateau. By local bus it takes 2 hours to travel from Ubon Ratchathani to Pakse, and then another 3 to 4 hours to travel from Pakse to Don Det, the most popular of the 4,000 Islands.
The tourists which Ubon Ratchathani does attract for the most part come to see the temples in and around the city. Ubon Ratchathani is the only place in Thailand with a Buddhist temple where English is spoken as the primary language, Wat Pah Nanachat, and foreigners interested in Buddhism frequently visit for residential courses in meditation and Buddhist theology.
Other notable temples in Udon Ratchathani include Wat Sirindhorn Wararam, Wat Nong Pa Phong and Wat Phra That Nong Bua. Wat Phra That Nong Bua in particular is a striking temple modelled on the more famous Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya in India, where the Lord Buddha attained enlightenment.
