Nong Khai overview

Nong Khai Travel Guide
Nong Khai boasts an interesting neighbour, with the country of Laos just a few miles over the famous Friendship Bridge. The area synthesises a range of Buddhist ideologies with various animal-human statues, naga sculptures and multi-armed goddesses dotted throughout. Its location along the Mekhong River is a major draw and the majority of visitors to Nong Khai use it as a stepping stone to get to nearby Vientiane over the bridge. As such, the traffic levels are elevated compared to towns of a similar size elsewhere in the country and visitors can expect to enjoy a vibrant nightlife coupled with a surprisingly decent selection of international brand name hotels and hostels.
