About Nong Khai
Nong Khai is a sleepy, idyllic city. It is situated on the banks of the Mekong River. You can clearly see Laos on the other side, with a short bus trip to the capital city there, Vientiane. Nong Khai was once ranked the 9th safest city in the world, which is impressive for a relatively unknown spot, and the source of frequent reminders by proud locals! The city has around three times as many Buddhist temples than other Thai cities, reflecting a more puritan lifestyle than in other parts of the country. The Mekong is backbone of this rural setting, with an esplanade stretching several kilometres along the riverbank, complemented with many local restaurants, cafes, bars, and waterfront housing. This stretch also features the undercover Ta Sadet market, running several hundred metres alongside the river. Fifty kilometres away is the larger city, Udon Thani, easily accessed by frequent shuttle buses between the neighbouring cities. Udon has an amazing array of restaurants and a massive shopping centre. There are branches of Tops and Vila markets here, and a selection of English soundtrack movies at two different cinemas.
Fun fact: Thailand’s best root canal dental surgeon operates from a local hospital in a small town around 50 kms away! Hopefully, you won’t ever need to see him…
