Nong Khai is a city in North-East Thailand, capital of the Nong Khai Province. It is situated directly at the Mekong River and is the site of the Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge across to Laos. It is the Thai gateway to the Laotian capital of Vientiane 25 kilometres up river, on the north bank opposite the town of Sri Chiang Mai on the Thai side. Although at the time of building the bridge, railtrack was installed along the centre of the roadway to the Laos side, no railway infrastructure exists in Laos to connect it with any on-going destinations. The service currently stops one kilometre short of the border at a new railway station not far from the city centre of Nonh Khai.

Good POV and composition. The 'liquid-gold' colour of the water is magnificent and I like it how the three little flags line up across the photo. The boat on the far right though (the one that is only half in the photo) seems to have no colour in it like it is part of a black & white photo. Very strange!
Nice frame and note too, by the way!
All the best,
