Udon Thani – Chinese Opulence to Ho Chi Minh’s Thai Hideaway

The North Eastern region of Thailand is home to many fascinating places of interest. Our first stop was Udon Thani’s Sino Thai Cultural Center and Temple, open 365 days a year, and obviously 7 days a week. The Center was developed to strengthen & showcase the long term cultural relationship between Thailand and China, and to promote Bi-lateral relations between the 2 countries and peoples. Afterwards, we travelled10 Kilometers west of Udon Thani on the Udon Kunjab Road to Hoi Chi Minh’s House and Educational Center. Major funding from the Siam Commercial Bank and the BIDV the Bank of Investment and Development of Vietnam enabled the construction of the Hoi Chi Minh Museum. Adjacent the Museum we find the original dwelling and home to the first settlement of the Vietnamese in Thailand. Hoi Chi Minh used the facility to train and educate troops. President Hoi Chi Minh lived in Thailand for a 2 year period from 1928 to 1930 in a total of 9 different provinces.
