Many travellers opt to stay near the train and old bus station in the vicinity of Soi Sampantamit, which is probably the seediest street in Northeast Thailand. Those hoping for a more local-style scene should opt for City Centre and Nong Prajak Park area.
We have 6 places to stay in and around Udon Thani.
Anyone wanting to avoid the sleazy side of Udon while staying closer to Nong Prajak Park should opt for one of the hotels in the city centre or towards the west side of town. We like the locations of these better in terms of atmosphere, but they’re also further from the Western food and other conveniences, including the trains and most buses.
