Udon Thani Province:

          Located in the heart of Khorat Plateau, Udon Thani Province is an ancient pre-historical province famous for its archaeological marvels. Udon Thani was a strategically important location during the Vietnam War. It served as an American airbase. Apart from its prehistoric sites, Udon Thani is known for beautiful Phu Phan mountain ranges, dense forests and fertile rice fields. This region has been the commercial, industrial and agricultural center in the Northeast.

Several artifacts and relics have been unearthed and preserved in the Ban Chiang National Museum. More...
