Ubon Ratchathani Getting in & out

Upload Photo     Upload Video

By plane

The grandly named Ubon Ratchathani International Airport in reality serves only flights to Bangkok. Thai Airways has one daily non-stop flight between Bangkok and Ubon and return. Air Asia has one daily non-stop flight between Bangkok and Ubon and return. NokAir has three daily non-stop flights between Bangkok Don Muaeng Airport and Ubon and return. Flight time is 50 minutes in Airbus A320 or Boeing 737 aircraft.

By bus

Buses to Bangkok take 10 hours (due to stops) and arrive near the BTS station known as Mochit or Morchit Mai, in the north part of the city. The Nakhon Chai Air private bus company also has frequent, well-maintained buses that ply the route and also leave from the Ubon bus terminal, but arrive at their own private terminal in Bangkok, near the main Mochit terminal.

Ubon is less than 100 km from the Lao border at Chong Mek / Pakse. A regular bus service now operates direct from Ubon bus station (near the "Big C" shopping complex) to Pakse in Laos, and caters for travellers who wish to obtain a Lao visa on arrival (it waits for all passengers to complete immigration and visa formalities before continuing to Pakse). The fare is 200 baht.

By train

Daily trains connect with Bangkok and stop at all the southern Isaan provincial capitals (Si Saket, Surin, Buriram, and Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat)). The station is to the south of the city on the opposite side of the Mun River in Warin Chamrap; buses 2 and 6 connect to the center.
One option is to catch the overnight night express train from Ubon (Warin Chamrap station)to Bangkok. Train departs at 6:30pm and arrives Bangkok at 5:30am. Travel first class in a two berth private sleeper compartment with fresh starched sheets and pillows for a little over 2,000 baht per couple. Travel is also available in 2nd class sleeper seats and 3rd class seats for a lower cost.

The airport is at the northern edge of the city almost within walking distance, but accommodation is scattered around Ubon, so better not to consider walking. Much better to go to one of the two limousine (taxi) counters that are located in the airport arrivals ... more
