Ubon Ratchathani Guide

Ubon Ratchathani is a large town in the lower northeast of Thailand.

There is an interesting group of temples in and around the area between the river and Thung Si Muang Park that can be covered in one pedicab trip (cost about 250 baht) in the following order: Wat Si Ubon Rattanaram, Wat Supattanaram, Wat Luang, Wat Klang, Wat Tai Phra Chao Yai Ong Tue, Wat Liab, Wat Burapha, and Wat Thung Si Muang. Two well-known temples, Wat Phra That Nong Bua and Wat Ban Na Muang, are on the outskirts of the city and can be reached by song-taew, as can Wat Nong Pah Pong, the former temple of well known forest monk, Ajahn Chah.

The famous votive candle sculpture and the city pillar shrine can be found in the park. Just to the south of the park is the National Museum and the Tourism Authority office.
