What to see in Ubon Ratchathani

There are many interesting temples in Ubon Ratchathani. The most important one is probably the Wat Nong Bua unique in Thailand and strongly inspired by a famous temple in India. Otherwise, we suggest you visit Wat Tung Si Muang and its old library on stilts and Wat Ban Na Muang, a boat shaped temple. ANd if you want to relax, go have a dring at Ubon Ratchathani's bech (on the river).

Must-visits in Ubon Ratchathani

Wat Phra That Nong Bua

วัดพระธาตุหนองบัว
My opinion :
Certainly one of the curiosities to be discovered in Ubon Ratchathani, this unique temple of this kind in Thailand is located on the outskirts of the city. It is a copy of the Mahabodhi Bodhgaya in India.

Wat Thung Si Muang

วัดทุ่งศรีเมือง
My opinion :
This temple is mainly famous for its wooden library on stilts.

Wat Sirindhorn Wararam (Wat Phu Prao)

วัดสิรินธรวรารามภูพร้าว
My opinion :
This small temple 1h30 drive from Ubon Ratchthani is particularly photogenic at dusk when the phosphorescent paintings of its rear facade are revealed. Not easy to photograph but beautiful !
