Little China in the center of Udon thani
Sep 2020
Ones can relax with Chinese atmosphere in this cutie place. Its architecture and design (Chinese pavilion with many Chinese lanterns and a carp pond in the middle) made us feel like we were in the mansion of wealthy Chinese in the era of Qing dynasty. My favourite thing is many short stories (with bas-relief illustrations) around the place that teach moral principles to their descendants. Museum zone displays the history of Chinese people (and their cultural) in Udon thani, while other zones are souvenir shop and cafe. "Phing An" cafe offers you Chinese tea, coffee, mantou (steamed bun with no filling), bao (steamed bun with filling). We also bought some fish food at souvenir shop to feed many carp in the pond. Moreover, walking through a beautiful Chinese garden in the back of the place will lead ones to an ancestor shrine. Many people worship this shrine for prosperity of their life.

Absolutely Chinese / No entrance fee / Worth visiting

The place is very relaxing. You can walk around the huge lake/park located outside or enjoy walking in the cultural center. They have Thai-Chinese museum which explains the history how the Chinese community started in Udonthani. Also you can join tea-making demonstration and try different kinds of teas. Theres nothing much to see but I did enjoy my time there. No entrance fee. Can visit or with family.

Close to the Laos border you will find the Province of Udon Thani, Thailand. If you are looking to escape the chaos of city life, come hangout in Udon Thani. I had the pleasure of visiting this must see cultural center. It's Chinese decor makes you feel like you are in a totally different world. The layout is magnificent and bright. I love it!

Impressively big and rich

I expected this to be only an official building, but it's actually beautiful by itself and offering even some indoor exhibitions worth seeing.

Cultural center, temple (of sorts), and museum
May 2019 • Couples
We only visited in the afternoon, and it seemed they had traditional lion dancing displays in the evening, so it would be worth considering visiting then. Or both times; it was really nice how it was quiet and serene there, a good environment for paying respect at the local temple altars. Not everyone would be into that part but Thais are open to paying respects and observing traditions from other cultures, and Chinese religious and cultural practices overlap with Thai versions.

There are very scenic small gardens, museum displays about local and ancient Chinese history, culturally significant items for purchase (small statues or talismans, and tea). You can feed the fish at a koi (colored catfish) "pond" area (not really a pond, more a cleaner small body of water that would be similar to those in Japanese gardens). The tea display and sales aren't so bad, but as a tea enthusiast I'm a bit picky about such things. The sheng pu'er is really worth a look, if that means anything. Normally I wouldn't see such a theme or area as "excellent" because I'm just not that interested, typically, but it was all really well done, and had a really nice look and feel.

Such a peaceful Place
Apr 2019 • Couples
This is the second or third visit to this attraction in Udon Thani, Thailand.

Parking is not a problem, there is ample space around.

The recently refurbished centre looks great.
There are beautiful fish in the pools which you can feed.
The information centre goes someway into explaining the history of the original Chinese settlers here in Udon Thani.
There is also a great coffee shop for a relax too...
The centre is free to enter however, contributions are requested if you visit the information museum or wish to feed the fish.

Over the road is the beautiful Nong Bua lake with the Chinese temple areas scattered around. This in itself is a great place for walking or simply picnicking in the park areas.

Overall a great place to visit to improve your cultural knowledge of this region of Thailand or just a fine surreal place to enjoy a coffee.
