A Worthwhile Pitstop on the Mekong
Of all the Mekong River towns in Thailand, Chiang Khan is probably the most appealing to visitors. Nestled right on the mighty river, the small town possesses low-key but enjoyable attractions such as the quaint wooden shophouses of its Walking Street and a riverside esplanade ideal for taking in the breeze and the wonderful views across the river to the mountains of Laos.
