Udon Thani City

Udon Thani is a large city with different areas. The area that’s most popular with foreign visitors is close to the railway station. The main road leading west from the front of the railway station, the Prajak Sillapkom Road, and a nearby side road, the Samphan Thamit Alley, is where most of the businesses catering specifically to European and North American tourists are located.  The Samphan Thamit Alley in particular has a high concentration of hotels, bars and restaurants where English is spoken and International Cuisine is served.

About 2 km to the west of the railway station is the older part of the city. The central point of this area of the city is Nong Prajak Park which has a large boating lake that is notable for its distinctive oversized yellow plastic floating ducks. Close to Nong Prajak Park is Wat Pothisomphon. Wat Pothisomphon is the largest temple in the city centre and features some interesting buildings and sculptures. It’s worth visiting.

Ban Chiang National Museum

The most famous tourist attraction in Udon Thani Province is Ban Chiang National Museum, located about 50 km by road to the east of Udon Thani City. It’s possible to reach Ban Chiang National Museum fairly cheaply by taking any bus from Udon Thani to Sakhon Nakhon and asking for the bus to stop at the turning to Ban Chiang Village. From the turning its a few kilometres ride in a tuk-tuk to the museum.

Ban Chiang National Museum houses local archaeological finds which are mostly from 2,000 to 3,000 years old. The most famous of these finds are decorated pottery jars.

The artefacts are the remains of an early settled agricultural community employing manufacturing techniques which were relatively sophisticated for that period in time. These finds were unearthed in the 1960s and 1970s and they changed our understanding of the development of culture and technology in South East Asia. Before the discoveries at Ban Chiang, settled agricultural communities and modern era manufacturing processes were believed to have come to the region much later with immigrant groups from China.
