Is Ubon Ratchathani about to be ‘discovered’?

Way back in 2009 I blogged about a writer coming and visiting me in my little village. He writes for the Sydney Morning Herald and is often seen on TV travel shows and heard on the wireless.

You can read about that here.

As a result he wrote a book called 5 ways to carry a goat where he dedicated a chapter to his visit with me.

You can read about the book and my thoughts back in 2010 here.

Last night I saw a link to a story about Ubon Ratchathani. Being interested in all things Ubon I clicked on it and was surprised to see the same Journalist (Ben Groundwater) had written an article called “Ubon Ratchathani province: The part of Thailand tourists haven’t discovered” a rehash about his time all those years ago.

It is a short but nice read and so, wanting to blow my own trumpet a little bit, thought I would share it with you all. Enjoy.

Here is the writer, Ben Groundwater wondering if he should believe me how nice and smooth the local Rice Whisky is.
