udon thani tour
I suppose I was fortunate in one sense when I first came to Udon Thani in early January 2003, for I was met by some Thai ladies who served as tour guides, driving me all over with Udon Thani City as our base. However, I never owned a digital camera nor a video camera, so just about everything I saw is lost to me now. I cannot even say where I was taken — Udon Thani was entirely new to me, so none of the names spoken to me had significance and were pretty much immediately forgotten.
In perusing some of the travel websites such as Asianventure Tours, ThailandTripTours, and Thailand MC Tours, my impression is that nothing specific for Udon Thani is available, so they are merely providing some information to assist the visitor in deciding what to see and do for him- or herself.
Indochina Odyssey Tours looks like a fairly large outfit in that part of the World; you could arrange an entire tour with them on your own, if you felt like responding to every question on their questionnaire.
For seeing the Province, there is nothing like the local touch. UdonMap‘s listing for Tour Operators currently only has the services of Jaunjira Jaidee on offer. I don’t know the young lady, but she has been affiliated with UdonMap for several years now, so I would venture that she is both reliable and able.
UdonMap also appears to back a travel agency that calls itself @ Here (At Here) Travel Company, who are based in Udon Thani City. They feature “package tours,” so it mightn’t hurt to contact them.
Some other local Udon Thani agencies — a half-dozen or so — are listed at Tuugo, but little is said of them.
Of course, you can do a little research yourself and have some idea of some of the things in the Province that you would like to see — Wikitravel mentions some points of interest.
Thailand’s official tourism website — Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) — has two tour listings under Tours & Packages Udon Thani. But the tours are not exactly Udon Thani-specific, obviously including at least Nong Khai Province.
I referred to UdonMap several times — you should peruse their forum for some ideas, if Udon Thani is completely new to you.
