Otherwise, the city has a giant toad-shaped building in a riverfront that became its emblem and right next to it a large naga inside which a 3D museum is located. The entire riverfront around is being built and should look like, once finished, what can be found in Nong Khai for example. Otherwise, the Old Town district with its Indo-Chinese wooden houses is also worth a look, like the nearby Wat Mahathat. But let's be honest except for the festival if Yasothon can make a nice stop in your trip to discover Isan, no monument here worths that you come expressly to see it. A few kilometers away from the city, you have a village that makes bamboo basketery and another one known for its traditional pillows.
Hotel in Yasothon
If there are direct buses from Bangkok, Yasothon is fairly not that well served by transport. The most regular buses are to or from Ubon Ratchathani, Khon Kaen, Roi Et and Sisaket. There are also a few buses per day for or to Nakhon Ratchasima. There is no train station in Yasothon, no airport either.
