Ubon Ratchathani holidays

Ubon Ratchathani, which is sometimes shortened to Ubon, is Thailand’s easternmost province located along the banks of the mighty Mekong River opposite Laos’ Champasak Province. The province is rich in folk culture as well as significant historical sights, including the 3,000 year-old cliff painting at Pha Taem, and natural scenery. Ubon also boasts Thailand’s largest Candle Festival which takes place at the beginning of Buddhist Lent in the seventh lunar month each year. Beautifully carved candle sculptures are paraded through the provincial capital accompanied by folk music and dancing.
