Never Been To Nakorn Phanom, But It Looks Like A Nice Little City.

Recommended Posts

It's a lovely town and I particularly like the river-front road and promenade. It's in the Isaan region but it doesn't feel like Isaan. The small town actually felt quite prosperous to me (unlike a lot of smaller towns in the region).

 

I made two visits there and found it rally relaxing. It's pretty in a similar way to downtown Nongkhai, but less harried, fewer people and less going on.

 

50 km south of the provincial capital is Pra That Phanom, a magnificent temple that can wow even those who feel that when it comes to temples they have seen them all.

Chen Khan is lovely, very well set up, I love the hotel where you can stay in a VW Kombi.

 

Nakon Phanom has been a fav too, close to Ho Chi Minh's Thai home.

 

We often drive along the Mekon, either left to Chen Khan, or right which gets us eventually to Mukdahan, also a lovely town.
