Nakhon Phanom Province/Thailand

Introducing Nakhon Phanom Province

Lao and Vietnamese influences are strong in Nakhon Phanom, a province bordered by the Mekong and full of highly revered temples. Though just about every person you see tending their fields is ethnically Thai, many wear conical Vietnamese-style straw hats. It's a region of subtleties rather than can't-miss attractions, but there are plenty of fine river views and interesting historic sites, and the colossal Wat Phra That Phanom is an enchanting talisman of Isan culture.
