Introducing Nong Khai Province
Lady Luck certainly smiles on the location. Occupying a narrow sweep along the banks of the Mekong, Nong Khai Province is a beautiful, intriguing region. Being on the travel route to/from Vientiane, Laos, just a short hop across the river via the Friendship Bridge, Nong Khai city is one of northeastern Thailand's most popular destinations. But long before the river was spanned, the surreal Sala Kaew Ku sculpture park was a must-see on any jaunt through the region while the towns and temples along the Mekong west of the capital encourage travellers to slow down.
