About Udon Thani

Udon Thani is the liveliest town in Thailand’s North Eastern Region with the best range of amenities for foreign visitors and great transport links, with two large bus stations, a railway station and an airport not far from the city centre.

Samphan Thamit Alley

Most foreign visitors to the city stay on or near to the Samphan Thamit Alley (near to the railway station and Udon Thani Bus Terminal 1) which has lots of inexpensive hotels, bars and restaurants serving both Western and Asian food. The Samphan Thamit Alley is a great place to stay if it’s your first time in Udon Thani because its easy to find somewhere to eat and drink and its a short walk from Udon Thani Night Market which is the best place to eat in the evening if you are on a tight budget, or prefer to eat authentic local food.

Tourist Attractions in the City

The two main tourist attractions in Udon Thani are Wat Pothisomphon, which is the largest temple in Udon Thani, and Nong Prajak Park, which is the city centre park famous for the giant yellow ducks floating in the lake in the centre of this park.

Ban Chiang National Museum

The best tourist attraction in the area, however, is Ban Chiang National Museum which is located 50 km from Udon Thani city centre on a side road off the main highway running from Udon Thani to Sakon Nakhon. The museum display artefacts found around Ban Chiang village from the earliest known farming settlement in South East Asia. These archaeological finds led to history books having to be rewritten as the pottery and metalwork discovered was much more advanced than had been previously thought.
