    Help, looking for accomodation in Ubon Ratchathani

    Yes, we pulled it off and are now on holiday in the Isaan. We visited Phimai and are now in Nang Rong for Phanom Rung.

    For those able to read Dutch; our blog is at: reisfamilie | Verhalen en tips van een familie op reis

    I just found out about the wax candlefestival in Ubon next weekend. I've been trying to book accomodation, but everything (understandably) seems to be full. We.re looking for rooms from thursday 14 untill sunday 17 July.

    Creative suggestions (homestay?) from TD-members are highly appreciated.

    All you need to do is ask the Isaan people - they can be very warm hearted especially when they see you have 2 young children with you.

    Good luck and enjoy.

    We've managed to get rooms in a guesthouse a bit outside Ubon centre for Saturday night, but the place is full on Friday. All of the places within easy walk of the park (where the major celebrations take place) are booked solid. They still have rooms Thursday & Saturday, for how long I don't know. If you are interested dhans, PM with your details & I will get on to it.

    I'm tempted to say just roll up, and something will sort itself out- but of course, with kids in tow this may not be so desirable. Perhaps take the booking for Thursday night, and look around for late cancellations elsewhere.

    Dhans, the Candle Festival is in Nang Rong this week-end. Or do you know that ? The parade that you see there just moves onto...... eventually Ubon.

    We got the last rooms at the Phadaeng Mansion. Nice place, no breakfast though, so breakfast suggestions anyone?
