    Ubon Ratchatani March 2016.

    The Handbag and I decided to jump a flight up to Ubon , hire a car for 5 days, tour locally then fly back to BKK. We punched out 1000 klm on a little tour taking in all the National Parks and sights Ubon has to offer. I must say I was very impressed with what I had seen on this trip. Ubon is very close to mighty Mekong and the Towns that run along it are a joy to visit. The first day we just walked around Ubon so will start with a few pics of the little walk around and a look see.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    I had stayed at the Sri-Issan hotel 8 years ago so booked back in here. Great location near the river in the old part of town.Close to the night market and day market. Decent rooms for 450 Baht or pay more for bigger ones. A new owner bought it in January and is in the process of renovation the place. Very friendly staff.

    We then jumped in a passing Songthaw and just rode to the last stop. It stopped outside the massive Central plaza on the out skirt of Ubon. This place is huge and very well set out. Good ride for 10 Baht.

    We jumped a songthaw back to town and visited the local Wat next to our Gaff, the Handbag is always up for a word to Buddha. Great building this was.

    The great thing about random walks is the people one meets. We were exiting the Wat and ran into this fella. He was painting a Forrest scene on the walls. He told me he has traveled all over Asia being commissioned to paint large murals, he was bloody good.

    I'm standing out side our Hotel, the night market is a quick walk just down that road.
    I really liked being in the old section of town with it's many wooden buildings.Nice little Night market by the way.

    Opposite the Hotel is the Day market and behind that is the Mon river. Sun is going down so time to see what's happening on the river. Off we go.

    No,

    After Banging around Central it was time to get back into Ubon central.

    I'll check it out next time and expect it to a major enterprise such as Central.

    Walk to the river, look right and watch the bridge changing colors. Nice when the sun is dropping.
