Udon Thani's Chao Pu Ya Temple holds a "golden dragon dance" on Dec 1st and Dec 5th every year. Sources from Internet will mention that it is held at both the temple ground and at Thung Si Mueang, and some will say the parade will travel from them temple to Thung Si Mueang and vice versa. That's all. Has anyone ever been to see this dragon dance? Does anyone has more details as to when and where, as in what time at exactly what place? The date and place may be different on both dates. This is to help me plan which hotel to book during this festival.
I am planning to travel from Bangkok to Vientiane via Udon Thani, taking a flight from BKK to UT then the bus to VT. The flight arrives at 8.10 in the morning. I have a choice of going straight from the airport to to the UT- Vientiane bus and move on, or stay in UT for a day and travel to VT the next day. Is there much to see in Udon Thani? From this link youtube.com/watch?v=04zdKcc-... it looks like it's worth it. What do you think?
