Udon Thani certainly isn’t the most naturally beautiful province in Thailand, but it still has plenty to offer visitors looking to experience a side of Thailand away from the main tourist trail. Located in Thailand’s north-eastern Isaan region, Udon Thani city is the ideal base to explore the province which shares the same name. In recent history, Udon Thani was an important American base during the Vietnam War, but it is for its prehistoric history that the area is particularly famous.

Ban Chiang is particularly famous for its pottery and visitors to Udon Thani will see replicas of Ban Chiang pots at various locations in and around Udon Thani including the airport and train station.
