About Ubon Ratchathani
Ubon Ratchathani is located at the far end of the Southern branch of Thailand’s North Eastern railway line only 95 km from the border crossing to Laos and 125 km from the nearest border crossing to Cambodia. Ubon Ratchathani is seldom visited by foreign tourists except those passing through on the way to Laos or the Preah Vihear temple just on the border with Cambodia. For some this adds to the appeal of Ubon Ratchathani which has a small town feel to it and authentic cheap prices for hotels and guesthouses.
One thing Ubon Ratchathani has in abundance is Buddhist temples and the province has a reputation as a centre of learning in relation to Buddhist religion. The Thai Forest Temple movement, a back to basic sect of the Thai Buddhist church, has outposts here and if you are looking for a forest retreat or simply a temple where they take the practice of Buddhism very seriously as end in itself then head to Ubon Ratchathani province. A good place to start out with study of Buddhism in Thailand is Wat Pah Nanachat, 24 km by road from Ubon Ratchathani, where English is spoken as the main language and foreign students live in basic accommodation within the jungle.
