About Udon Thani
Udon Thani is a large town in the North East Region of Thailand that many visitors only pass through because it has an airport which is close to the border with Laos with cheap flights to and from Bangkok. Udon Thani is, however, a pleasant place to spend time with several points of interest and some great value hotels and restaurants.
The most popular place to stay for foreign visitors to stay in Udon Thani is near the train station and in particular on the Samphan Thamit Alley, which is where the fantastic and cheap Top Mansion is located. The Samphan Thamit Alley is also a lively place to go out in the evening as is the nearby Udon Thani Night Market.
The major tourist attraction in the Udon Thani area is Ban Chiang Museum which is about 50 km to the east of the city centre. This museum displays artefacts found in Ban Chiang village which date back thousands of years from a farming community which once occupied the area. Also of interest in Udon Thani is Nong Prajak Park and the adjacent Wat Pothisomphon, which is Udon Thani’s main Buddhist temple.
If you have your own transport you might also visit Wat Kham Chanot Temple, which is 88 km from Udon Thani city centre. Wat Kham Chanot Temple is a temple which is very famous in Thailand but virtually no foreigners ever go there. Some Thai Buddhists believe that the forest at this temple contains a portal between the human realm and the spirit world, and that the mythical Naga serpents that live in the Mekong River travel to earth through the forest at Wat Kham Chanot Temple.
