Wat Phra That Nong Bua

Reviewed By gonsalvesr2 - Sisaket, Thailand

A beautiful temple in the heart of the city and worth the visit. It city centered so you can go shopping to Ubon Square and many other facilities around. Alot of hotels and restaurants are located here, so there is no shortage of eats and good prices. Ubon is a lovely city and the people make it because of their kindness and hospitality, which lacks in Bangkok. Have fun many things to do and see.

Wat Nong Pah Pong

Reviewed By Gary S - Bangkok, Thailand

Ubon is a bit boring but if your here this Wat is a must see. Very well kept Gardens and surrounds and overall a lovely place to wander around. There was hardly any people there and I seemed free to move around and check out the Wat at my leisure. No one trying to sell you anything and no tourist traps like Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket!

Thung Si Mueang

Reviewed By Victorianlad - Melbourne, Australia

Apart from its gold Buddhas, this park is used extensively by locals for exercise and socialising.
There are at least 60 car parking spaces.
When I visited at 1030 hours on a Sunday after attending Mass at Immaculate Conception Cathedral (Catholic), the area was not busy, but it would make a great introduction to this northern Thai city for any visitor.

Sirindhorn Wararam Phu Prao Temple (Wat Phu Prao)

Reviewed By Charn P - Bangkok, Thailand

Seeing Wat Phu Prao for the first time gave the feeling of lightness since the structure of the temple compose of the grand roof with its supporting pillars. The open space under the roof is lightly decorated. This openness has stairways on the 4 sides leading up to the platform of the temple. The temple is like a beautiful piece of art to be treasure and paying homage. Allow minimum 60 minutes to wander around this site.

Pha Taem National Park

Reviewed By Tangtian - Bangkok, Thailand

We did not get to see the sunrise at Pha Taem (which is supposed to be one of the most beautiful in Thailand) but we walked to see the ancient painting sites. We took to the 3.8km walk around, very well indicated. It was hot but bearable (we started around 8am). The view was very spectacular. The paintings were very impressive. The walk was very quiet as most people do not walk all the way so we really could enjoy our quite time along the way.
I really recommend it. The stone is incredible. The entrance fee for foreigner is 400B and it is worth it. Put on your good hiking shoes is a must.

Wat Thung Sri Muang

Reviewed By Tangtian - Bangkok, Thailand

We went to this temple by chance after seeing most of the temples. We were surprised how authentic and beautiful it was. The mural was incredibly beautiful (unfortunately not well preserved). There is also another hall in the river and it accommodate the Buddhist scriptures (unfortunately again not well preserved). We found both halls very interesting.

Ubon Ratchathani National Museum

Reviewed By LH M - Peterborough, Canada

The provincial branches of the National Museum were a remarkable achievement on the part of a poor, developing country when they were first established, but they've been subjected to chronic underfunding by the central government in recent years. You can feel some of the effect of that neglect here unfortunately. All the same, as in all of these regional museums, there are some unexpected treasures here, and it's a pleasant place to spend an hour or two. I'd note particularly some of the Dvaravati sculptures, and the really good collection of Lao Buddha images.

Went here with my friend to see the temple. Very nice place to see over the Mekong River into Laos. To understand the reason for the temple there are three wood benches overlooking the river. The story of the Buddhist Monk who lays to rest their. I like this temple and is a awsome place to visit.

Wat Pah Nanachat

Reviewed By daggs2011 - Melbourne, Australia

This definitely the place to go to if you are interested in paying respect to the Buddha, the Dhamma and Sangha. It's so peaceful and everyone is helpful. The grounds are wonderful for a meditative walk after Pa-Ba. It starts early, the monks gather at 8am and the food is offered. All the lay people gather in the Sala and a blessing is chanted. If you want to help with the preparation its best to be there by 7am. We took a registered Taxi from our hotel in Ubon city, and paid 150bht.
