Introducing Mukdahan

On the banks of the Mekong, directly opposite the Lao city of Savannakhet, Mukdahan sees few visitors, despite being home of the Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge 2 connecting Thailand to Vietnam by road. It's not an exciting place, but there's enough of interest to fill a relaxing day, and the countryside near the city has plenty of low-key attractions worth exploring for people who love culture and nature.
