About Travel to Ubon Ratchathani
Ubon Ratchathani is the largest city in the far eastern part of Thailand, close to the border with Southern Laos, and the closest crossing to the Laotian city of Pakse. Pakse is the place to go to board a direct bus to Don Det in the 4,000 Islands area of Laos. Ubon Ratchathani has over 120,000 permanent residents and a range of facilities including hotels, bar and restaurants, some of which cater well to foreign visitors.
Ubon Ratchathani is located within a fairly remote part of Thailand with few other large towns and is by far the best place to stay either in transit to Laos or to visit the tourist attractions in the region.
The relatively small number of tourists who come to Ubon Ratchathani for the purposes of sight-seeing, as opposed to passing through the city on the way to Laos, are mostly Thai and typically planning to visit the famous temples in the region. There are four temples in particular that attract visitors.
The most famous of these four temples is probably Wat Phra That Nong Bua, located 10 km from the railway station. Wat Phra That Nong Bua is one of the three temples in Thailand modelled on the most holy of Buddhist sites, the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya in India, which marks the spot where the Lord Buddha attained enlightenment.
Wat Pah Nanachat and Wat Nong Pa Phong are working temples located outside the city itself and are popular places for study and meditation.
The fourth, and more recently constructed temple, which attracts lots of visitors is Wat Sirindhorn Wararam. Wat Sirindhorn Wararam is an architecturally beautiful hill top temple, which is illuminated at night and located 92 km by road from Ubon Ratchathani.
