Nong Khai

 

Nong Khai is a nice small Border town to Laos and was the last station of our journey by the Isaan. Over in the year 1994 opened friendship bridge there is a more or less direct connection to Laos. Therefore are also many Travellers on the way, and you can find many guesthouses, restaurants and Internet cafes.
 
Because of the separated situation is the Thai- language not the main language here, Isaan and Lao is very popular. But because of the tourist is English no problem.

On the bank of the Mekong there is a large Indochina/Laos Market, on which one gets everything. Here are goods offered from Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and China.

At all Nong Khai is a very pleasant city and a stay about few days is really nice.
 
We arrived Saturday afternoon and visited on Sunday the Sarnelli House. On the next day we wanted to go by Motorbike along the beautifully described route at the Mekong to the west direction Tha Bo and the Wat Khaek with its famous sculptures. But straight on this day it rains cats and dogs and our trip fell into the water. We could not change our trip to the next day, because our plane to Bangkok was already booked for this day. It was very pity but we hope we can do this trip at a next time.
