Nong Khai

Nong Khai Province is located within the North-Eastern Region of Thailand, running along the Mekong River, providing the main access to Laos. Originally people went by boat from Tha Sadet, but the building of the Friendship Bridge across the Mekong has made Nong Khai a major centre for transport and trade with Laos. Despite its busy border point, Nong Khai town is peaceful with a very laid back atmosphere.
