Worth visiting is the Udon Sunshine Orchid garden. It is located on the northern outskirts of the city. The “Udon Sunshine” orchid is the first orchid in the world to be made into a perfume.
They also have dancing orchids.
Ban Chiang is prehistorical archaeological site locate 55 km east of Udon off hiway 22, just past Nong Han. There are 2 roads leading to Ban Chiang, both are off hiway 22 to the north.
Wat Dong Sap Wittaya is on the east side of the city. It is full of very tall statues of all religions. Do not miss this if you visit Udon Thani. It may be hard to find. Go to the TON KOON HOTEL on 50/1 Makkang Rd., they know where it is located and can give easy directions. The
Koon Ton Hotel is nice and only 700 baht in 2006. The dragon bench above is at the hotel.
