Udon Thani

Udon Thani (อุดรธานี) is a big, brash city with one of the largest expat populations in Thailand. The city was the site of a large US airbase during the Vietnam War , and it subsequently became the region's primary transport hub and commercial centre. The town itself doesn't have any must-see attractions, but there are some tremendously interesting spots around it.
