Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is one of the best night markets with a huge selection of stalls, bars, and places to eat. If you want to find food everything is available at competitive prices due to the large amount of competition. The market is spread over a large area, and you will need time if you want to see it all. This compares vary favourably with any markets Bangkok has to offer.

    Quiet. Nice. And quaint.
    But not easy to get to without local answer.
    Need a taxi or book a car
    Nice vibe in the area.
    Doesn’t take too long.

    Quiet mall. Not very busy on weekdays or week nights. Your usual American, Korean and Japanese chain food.
    Some local stuff.
    Nice to get away from the heat

    A nice place to spend a few hours or have a picnic. Nicely landscaped with plenty of shady places to sit or stroll on the small island. Sizeable children's playground, toilets, even a tai chi area. There's a bike path that rings the park, not sure of the overall length, maybe around 3 km. Across the road along the east side of the park, there are many local restaurants (at the north end) and a whole row of massage shops (at the south end). Prices at these massage shops are lower than those near Central Plaza, so if you're on a budget you might consider walking over to this part of town. All together, this park is absolutely worth a visit for a relaxing morning or afternoon outing.

    Only visited the relatively newly constructed temple buildings, all in white.

    I found this to be a very interesting and beautiful merging of old and new design of Thai temple. In one way very "simple" and straight forward design, it gives a very majestic impression.

    And in the evening they keep the spotlights in for a few hours.

    Very well worth a visit even though it is a bit outside Udon Thani town.

    A very peaceful and a very well maintained temple. The temple and its surroundings are very well kept. There is lots of information provides in this temple. The people working there are very helpful. It is next to the biggest park in Udon Thani. It's worth a visit. Combined this visit to the park and the eateries that line opposite the park.

    We most enjoyed the water details, the koi pond, cafe and park-like setting, plantings and walking path. The small shops offer better than expected curios and sourvenirs.

    Great complexity to this Chinese temple with great complexity to it set around a beautiful lake, it has a series of gardens, temples walkways all very well maintained.

    It also has an educational centre that is great for the kids.

    This statue/monument is in the middle of the city as a tribute to Prince Pajak the founder of Udon Thani.
    It's was central to the recent celebrations of 126 years anniversary of Udon Thani.
    Very impressive roundabout with the monument and well arranged and groomed garden.

    Udon doesn't have many options when it comes to public parks. This park is a good place to exercise. There's a bike trail and also a running/walking trial going nearly all the way around the lake, along with several exercise stations. I walked the circumference in about 30 minutes, at an easy pace. There are some shady spots for a picnic along the east side of the lake, and there are a few basic restaurants on the east side as well. More food sellers are located near the railroad tracks near the south entrance to the business park and there are at least two cafes inside the Thai Chinese Cultural Center. This park has improved over the years but could still use improvement. I saw very little trash on the ground, but the exercise equipment has seen better days and there appear to be people living on some of the park benches. Oh, and while you are here, the cultural center is quite an interesting (and pretty) attraction. Worth a visit.

    When in Udon, I must make a visit to this place. Rare and trademark Orchid, but its not a big place as this privately owned. Owner very friendly.

    Nice temple in large grounds close to the city, not a spectacular as other temples around Thailand but what made this more interesting on the young monks working around the grounds sweeping etc.

    If you see the monks have a look otherwise it’s just another temple from a tourist point of view.

    The Landmark Plaza is a compact shopping centre, that packs in plenty of variety to tempt both shoppers and diners, alike. You can explore this mall in air-conditioned comfort, across multiple themed floors (see my YouTube). The small food court adjacent to the cinemas on the top floor, provides some city views, as well as economical eats.
