Amnat Charoen Travel Guide

This tiny town in northeastern Thailand really has little to offer visitors. If you are looking for extreme relaxation this might be a good place to visit, but there isn’t much in the way of entertainment.

Although you won’t find many of the tourist attractions that are abundant in other parts of Thailand, this is a good place to wander through picturesque rice paddies and fruit orchards and explore the temples with their sacred Buddha images. The area is famous for its handicrafts, making it a good place to pick up a few souvenirs.

A good time to visit Amnat Charoen is during the winter when you can ride the rapids on the mighty Mekong River. Relax beside the river in the evening with a beer or two and a good meal.

Getting There & Away

The easiest way to get to Amnat Charoen is by taking an air-conditioned coach from Bangkok. Alternatively, the nearest airport is 75kms away at Ubon Ratchathani and you can catch a bus between the two towns.
