About Travel to Ubon Ratchathani

This journey is one of the most scenic on Thailand’s railway network following a route which goes through the mountain between Ayutthaya and Pak Chong and then on past Buri Ram, Surin and then Si Sa Ket before terminating at the end of this branch of the North Eastern line at Ubon Ratchathani. It is worth noting that the North Eastern Line splits into 2 branches beyond Nakhon Ratchasima at Thanon Chira Junction, with one headed North toward Nong Khai and the other due East towards Ubon Ratchathani.

Few foreign visitors take the branch of North Eastern Line which heads East toward Ubon Ratchathani which is shame as there is some great views of the Southern part of Thailand’s Isan Region you simply do not to see if you fly or travel by road. The route is particularly beautiful in October and November time as the rice matures in vast areas of paddy fields before harvest time in December.
