Chiang Khan

Chiang Khan is a great place to visit.  The town is untouched by modern developments and the buildings are still the old original NE Thailand wooden construction.  Its a lovely walk along the banks of the river at dawn or sunset and at night the streets are full of vendors selling all sorts of interesting foods, clothes etc.  I love the little crisp river shrimps on a stick and eaten in their shells, the frozen beer which bursts out of the bottle in cold froth and freshly roasted chestnuts.

On the way to Chiang Khan, high in the mountains above the Mekong River northwest of Nong Khai there is a lovely temple at Sangkhom.  The views are magnificent and I especially love the bells.  If you are brave you can walk out on to the glass viewing platform and experience being suspended above this beautiful scenary

Long Trips 

More than one day

Vientiane the capital of Laos is relatively close to our guest house.  The main bridge to Laos is at Nong Khai where you can make the crossing and then it's a short minibus ride to the city.  There are some interesting places to visit and some good restaurants.  It is especially lovely to eat on the banks of the Mekong as the sun sets.

The Red Lotus Lake. There is a lake in the north part of Kumphawapi district which is worth a visit.

From December untill March this large lake is filled with lotusses. It is amazing to see this, the whole lake looks like a large lotus field. It is called "Talee Bua Daeng"
