Something for Everyone
Nature Lovers can marvel at the Red Lotus Lake or enjoy walks around Nong Prajak and Phu Foi Lom National Parks. Those looking to cool off will find an abundance of water fun including lunching on Nam Pan Lake’s Rafts, waterslides at Usotel Waterland or an inland beach at Tanita Tara Beach. History Buffs will delight in the UNESCO Heritage Site at Ban Chiang, the Phu Phra Bat Historical Park or visiting Ho Chi Minh’s old home in Udon. Shoppers will also find there are many things to do including modern Malls and Night Markets.
There are also many religious sites to see. The new Blue Temple, Wat Pa Phu Kon, is the most recognised of many temples for its visual splendour but there are also many other treasures here. Visiting Wat Kham Chanot, which legend claims sits on the home of the Grand Naga, is well worth visiting as are the fantastic concrete sculptures at Sala Keoku Buddha park.
If you can, time your visit to coincide with one of the many traditional festivals here such as the Naga Fire Ball Festivals, the thousand year old Rocket Festival or get drenched in a water fight at Songkran.
