Wat Hua Wiang Rangsi information
This riverside temple has a bóht built in 1921 and the paintings inside are in excellent condition for their age, though they're central Thai rather than Isan style.

It's mostly the same tat found in other Thai markets, but some of the Lao traders sell roots, honey, bats and other forest products.
