ubon ratchathani

Province of region Northeastern Thailand (Isaan)

Bordering Laos and Cambodia and located in the far east of Thailand, Ubon Ratchathani is a province with a rich cultural heritage, breathtaking natural landscapes and traditional way of life.

The province is famous for its Buddhist festivals, notably the Candle Festival which marks the start of Buddhist Lent called Khao Phansa.

Pha Taem National Park famous for its prehistoric cave paintings that adorn the rock walls offers a glimpse into the lives of ancient civilizations that inhabited the region thousands of years ago. And the Sam pan Bog, nicknamed the Grand Canyon of Thailand, are the two most impressive natural sites. Which are complemented by pretty waterfalls.

Ubon Ratchathani is also a province rich in crafts including gong makers but also silk work and traditional textiles, which reflect the skills and cultural heritage of local communities.

The town itself on the banks of the Mun River is very interesting with quite a few temples worth seeing and even a beach. The Khong Chiam area is also beautiful and probably my favorite part.

Ubon Ratchathani is a destination that touches the heart and mind, offering visitors an experience deeply rooted in Thailand's culture, history and natural landscapes. Whether you are drawn to spirituality, nature, history or gastronomy, Ubon Ratchathani has something special to offer.
