About travel to Ubon Ratchathani


Ubon Ratchathani is the largest city in far eastern part of Thailand. The city’s remoteness means that relatively few domestic tourists travel there and even fewer foreign visitors. Nonetheless, Ubon Ratchathani has fairly good facilities, and much netter than those in neighbouring towns and village, which makes it the best place to stay to visit this part of Thailand. The main attractions in and around Ubon Ratchathani are its temples. Some of the temples, particularly Wat Pah Nanachat, accept foreign visitors for residential courses in Buddhism. Other temples, such as Wat Sirindhorn Wararam and Wat Nong Bua, are beautiful buildings filled with Thai art and well worth visiting.
