Traveling in Ubon Ratchathani province in North-East Thailand

Last year I did make a posting about counting all the provinces I had been in Thailand. And I saw I have been to (stayed in) 48 provinces out of the 76. So in the coming months I will travel via my postings from the most southern province I have been to the most northern province, with some photos and information about each province. This is part 38 of the 47 (out of the 77) provinces where I have at least stayed overnight once. Ubon Ratchathani province is in the most south-eastern part of North-East Thailand and borders Laos and Cambodia. The capital town of course is Ubon Ratchathani. Be aware that many times Ubon Ratchathani is just called Ubon.

Now it is weird, although I have been quit a few times in Ubon I actually did not write much about it. And I did also not much photos in Ubon. Of course I went a few times to Ubon as stop-over to travel to Laos. And I did once travel along the Thai-Lao and Thai Cambodian border. Beautiful mountains, waterfalls and stunning views.
