Getting There & Away

From That Phanom's new bus station, inconveniently located west of town (a túk-túk to the river should cost 30B to 40B), there are buses to Ubon Ratchathani (162B, 4½ hours, seven daily), Udon Thani (160B to 180B, five hours, four daily) and Bangkok (473B to 753B, 11 to 12 hours, 7.20am, 8am, and 11 between 5pm and 7pm), and minivans to Nakhon Phanom (40B, one hour, frequent 6am to 6pm) and Ubon Ratchathani (145B, four hours, hourly 6.30am to 5pm) via Mukdahan (40B, one hour).

Most people, however, don't use the bus station since the minivans also stop just south of the tâht on Chayangkun road, and for Nakhon Phanom you can take one of the sŏrng·tăa·ou (40B, 1½ hours, frequent 7am to 4pm) that depart from the highway 300m north of the tâht.

Air Asia has fly-and-ride service using Nakhon Phanom's airport. It drops off and picks up at a little blue bus shelter just north of the tâht.
