Welcome to Khong Jiam
Khong Jiam (โขงเจียม), often spelled Khong Chiam, sits on a picturesque peninsula at the confluence of the reddish-brown Mekong and bluish Mun rivers. It's known as Mae Nam Song Si (Two-Colour River) because of the contrasting colours at the junction. The multicoloured merger is usually visible from the shore, but it’s best seen from a boat. When the rivers are high (June to October) the blending waters create small whirlpools and a strange bubbling that resembles boiling lava, though the colour divide is less distinct at this time.
