Across the Mekong in the north and east of Isaan (Thailand) lies Laos. These parts of Thailand are heavily influenced by Lao culture and Lao language is very common.
The sleepy riverside town of Chiang Khan lies a couple of hours to the north of Loei and is slowly becoming a tourist destination. It is a very enjoyable place to hang around and go for walk along the river to watch the sun go down.
The muddy waters of the Mekong
turn a shade of blue
evenings and mornings only.
Any other time
you'll find it
