    talking Udon Thani

    Hi everyone, My inlaw are from Udon Thani and I was wanting to know if anyone knows anything about this province? What is the main attraction there? Parks? Mountains? etc. I heard something about Udon Thani being used mainly for military?

    Does anybody know anyone who lives there? I was just curious...

    I'm also very interested in this "Udon Thani" place. What is it like? Can anyone in the forum post a description of the place? Also where exactly in Thailand is it? Is it near Pattaya or Bangkok?

    Udon Thani is a northeastern province covering an area of 15,589 square kilometres. The provincial capital is 562 kilometres northeast of Bangkok.

    Na Yoong Nam Som Forest Park
    Located some 100 kilometres northwest of the provincial capital, beyond Phu Phar Bat Historical Park, in Amphoe Nam Som, this park is best known for the 40-metre high Yung Thong Waterfall which cascades down a steep cliff in verdant surrounding from the Phu-Pan and Phu Ya U ridges.

    Ban Chiang National Museum
    Located some 56 kilometres east of the provincial capital along Highway No. 22 (until Km. 50 and then along Highway No. 2225), this museum is currently open to the general public every day. Ancient artifacts, including tools, utensils, pottery and jewellery, between 4000 and 7000 years old, were unearthed in the immedite vicinity. the distinctive pottery, with its fingerprint whorl decorations, is belived to be the world's oldest decorative earthenware. Nearby burial pit, left as they were after excavation, in the compound of Wat Po Si Nai, show how valuables, including earthenwere pots, were buried with the dead. Evidence of primitive bronze casting technology was discovered in the aera, and in 1992 Ban Chiang was decalred a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
