Asia BackPackers opens the doors to its latest Hostel in Udon Thani; with the next phase of our planned expansion into Thailand underway we are ready to welcome guests to our latest venue, we have plans to add small female and mixed dorms, along with double and twin bed options and larger impressive rooms for ‘Flashpackers’ With so much choice we believe we can cater for almost all budgets, with a new bar and common area we believe our guests will remember their stay with us for all the right reasons
While the city cannot boast the attractions and the commercialization of its younger cousin Chiang Mai (434 miles to its west) it can boast the enviable title of the gateway to the province of Isan, to the north Vientiane, the capital of Laos and to the North East, Hanoi the capital of Vietnam. It should be a must stop over for backpackers looking to travel through Thailand and to see as much of this wonderful country as possible before moving on to its neighbours.
Udon Thani gives the avid backpacker the base to explore what this unique region of Thailand is all about and what makes Isan so different from the rest of Thailand. There is so much to see and do from this vantage point, why not come and see for yourself, before it becomes yet another commercialized play ground.
