Udon Thani Travel Tips

Insider advice for your Udon Thani vacation

Sticky Rice in Isaan 3 stars
Not that many travellers go to the North East of Thailand, the area of Isaan. Maybe en route to Laos and Nong Khai, but generally it is left off the itinerary, which is a pity because this part Thailand is the rural working heart of the country. Ask any bar worker where they come from and nine times out of ten, its either Korat, Buriram or somewhere further north such as Sakhon Nakhon or Udon. This is the home of the extremely stupid water buffaloe and sticky rice. The night market in Korat is a great place to sample Isaan food, and the rice can accompany anything from frogs to locusts. An aquired taste but this is the poorest part of Thailand and people used to eat what they could find, not what they wanted. I have found most Isaan people to be good, friendly folk and much more open than those from Bangkok. Take the three hour trip to Korat and see the real Thailand!


Going to Udon Thani Thailand 3 stars
I have made a few choices in the past to take long bus trips in Thailand to get me to far away cities. The rayong to udon thani service costs only 9$ and takes about 12 hours. The best time for me is to leave at about 5pm and arrive at 5 in the morning. I can then sleep in the morning and wake up refreshed. This is much better than a full day trip as there is not much traffic to contend with at night. I was surprised how easy the first 9 or 10 hours was and how hard the last 2 hours were!
