One of the four major cities in Isan, Udon Thani is known as the gateway to Thailand northeast region and to Laos. Although this commercial hub is perfect for business, Udon Thani also attracts more casual visitors, offering shopping opportunities and sightseeing options.
Shopping enthusiasts will enjoy staying steps away from Udon Thani’s largest shopping and lifestyle destination, Central Plaza Udon Thani, while the excavated Bronze Age settlement of Ban Chiang (50 kilometres from Udon Thani) is a must-see. This renowned archaeological site features in the UNESCO world heritage list since 1992. The Phu Phrabat National Park is a superb ridge line that dates back more than three thousand years and contains large and mysterious sandstone formations and Bronze Age cave paintings.
If you find yourself in Udon Thani in the cooler months – December through to February, the Red Lotus Sea (known as Talay Bua Daeng) is an absolute must-see. Located in the Kumphawapi district, the Red Lotus Sea offers you to sail across a lake where the pink hues of the floating lotus flowers share the landscape with verdant grass fields.
