Relatively unknown to the most tourists, the province boasts a number of natural wonders, cultural and historical attractions, national parks, silk producing shops, etc.
The province is renowned for its strong Buddhist tradition, particularly the practice of forest-dwelling monks and the ancient Buddhist temples, which can still be seen throughout the province today.
There are many tourist attractions which are very interesting that should know.

This park covers an area of 140 square kilometers, where plateaus and hills dominate the parks landscape. There are sheer cliffs, which resulted from earthquakes.

Located in Pho Sai district, Ubon Ratchathani, Sam Phan Bok is a new destination that attracts numerous people to watch memorable sunsets and to spend the night on the fascinating rocky ground.
Chanadai Cliff is located in the north part of Pha Taem National Park. The main entrance to the park in the south where most tourists go is about 200 meters above sea level. Chanadai is 430 meters in comparison and offers a significantly more spectacular view. It’s also significantly more difficult to access. It took us 2 hours to go 13.3km. The first half is very rocky with plenty of pot holes and tight turns but it’s very accessible in a truck or SUV.
