Ban Chiang - Early Bronze Age Village

Udon Thani, called Udon for short, was a regional base for the USA during the Vietnam War. About the only reason to go there now is to visit the world heritage site of Ban Chiang, which is about one hour outside of town.

    happy new year, Ray....trying to decide if I should stop in for a day in UT, or pass on through...I think the passing on thru is winning!
