Home - Travel stories - Udon Thani - Introduction

Udon Thani is a fast growing city in the north-east of Thailand, approximately 560 km from Bangkok.
The city is a major trading center for northern Isaan, and the gateway to Laos, North Vietnam and southern China.

The city is easily accessible by plane, train and bus. By car, on good four lane highways, from Bangkok it takes about 6 hours.

In the city there are a number of good hotels and plenty of restaurants.

In 1994 we have been here for the first time, in 1998 for the last time.

The coordinates are 17°25'N 102°45'E.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
