The charming city of Ubon Ratchathani in the north east of Thailand, is gradually gaining a more important share of Thailand's tourism industry, both with domestic tourists and with visitors from overseas.

The city, located around 600km from Bangkok, has invested in a fleet of open air buses that are designed to help tourists get around the city and discover some of its hidden gems.

The buses operate daily from the popular Thung Si Muang Park in the heart of the old town, between 9 am and 4pm and take tourists to 9 different temples around the city.

The tour takes around 3 hours and is free of charge.

Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand

Ubon Ratchathani, which shares the border with both Laos and Cambodia, has a wealth of tourist attractions including street markets, traditional food markets, wide tree-lined boulevards, monuments, waterfalls, national parks, the River Mun, numerous temples and museums, and is home to the annual candle festival.

 It also boasts a rapidly growing number of trendy restaurants, cafes and bars, along with shopping malls that would not be out of place in the capital city Bangkok.

But it is really the people of Ubon that make this wonderful destination shine. They deliver what can only be described as a genuine and extremely welcoming Thai experience. It is not unheard of for complete strangers to offer you a lift from the airport to wherever you are going, and to go out of their way to make you feel welcome. It is this genuine hospitality and pride in the city, and themselves, that will have you coming back to Ubon time and time again.

Numerous airlines operate a number of flights per day between Ubon and different destinations in Thailand. Fares on AirAsia from Bangkok, for example, are often below 1,000 Baht one way.
