As a province somewhat off the typical tourist route, Amnat Charoen is best reached via private car or public bus. However, it is possible to take a train or plane to nearby Ubon Ratchathani and then a short bus to Amnat Charoen. Once there, it may be easier to get around with your own car, but there are standard forms of local transport available for visitors: i.e. songtaew, motorbike taxi, and tuk tuk.
As there is no train service directly to Amnat Charoen, it is possible to take a train to Ubon Ratchathani first and then take bus from there to Amnat Charoen, 75 kilometers away.
