Nong Khai

Nong Khai is a northeastern Thai province on the banks of the Mekong River. The provincial capital, also called Nong Khai, is a gateway to Vientiane, the capital of Laos, via the Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge. In the city’s east, Sala Keoku Park has giant concrete Buddhist, Hindu and Christian statues. Northeast along the river, the jungle-covered Phu Wua Wildlife Sanctuary is home to elephants, deer, bears and monkeys.

The province’s many temples include the ornate Wat Pho Chai in the center of the capital, with a Buddha statue made from bronze, gold and rubies. The large Wat Hin Mak Peng temple, overlooking the river in the province’s west, is a popular place to practice meditation. Among numerous waterfalls along the Mekong River are Than Thong Waterfall, with its large natural swimming pool, and the high, tiered Thanthip Waterfall just to the northwest. Mysterious glowing balls of light are said to rise up from the river during the popular Naga Fireball Festival, held in the Phon Phisai District in October.
