Chiangkhan

What: The century-old small village on the bank of Mekong River is another fast-growing tourist hotspot thanks to its descendent traditions and tranquility. The archaic wooden houses lined along the road are also captivating.

When: Everyday but long holiday is highly not recommended if you prefer to experience the real Chiangkhan.

Where: Loei, 583 Km. away from Bangkok

Why: Despite over a century, the riverside community still holds its old vibe which umpteen old-time hunters are after.

Note: There is a tradition of offering sticky rice to monks in the early morning, and some travelers are likely to do inappropriate manner. Make sure you don’t bug the local or violate the monk’s prohibition (Monk is not allowed to be touched by women).
