Udon Thani (know simply as Udon) is approximately 560 km from Bangkok, the province covers an area of 15,589 sq. km., with its boundary stretching to Nong Khai in the north, Khon Kaen in the south, Sakon Nakhon in the east, and Nong Bua Lam Phu in the west. Udon Thani is situated on a plateau with mountains and forested area in the west.

Udon Thani was once an important US military base during the Vietnam war, so it retains reminders of that time, with bars, coffee shops, and hotels. Today, there are a large number of retired US servicemen who have settled there. There is also an Udon branch of the US veterans of foreign war association, along with a relay station of VOA. 
  The main reason to come to Udon Thani is its access to Thailand's premier bronze age excavation at Ban Chiang, the world-renowned archaeological site. Ban Chiang is located 47 km east of Udon's city centre. Although there is little attraction to see in the city for most travellers, there are a few quite interesting temples.
