What to see in Chiang Khan

Interesting to see in Chiang Khan is primarily the Mekong and the sunsets over the river (the sunrises depending on time of the year are also interesting), the traditional wooden houses and Chai Khong Road, the busiest and most preserved street of the city. Wat Si Khun Muang which is on the same street is a nice little temple that worth a quick visit. And of course, one thing to do in Chiang Khan is go for a walk on the riverfront. Note that a boat trip on the Mekong or trips to Phu Tok,a neighboring mountain offering a beautiful view, are possible (ask your accommodation).

Must-visits in Chiang Khan

River front Chiang Khan
My opinion :
built on the banks of the Mekong River with Laos on the other side. It is a pleasant place to stroll and admire the sunsets. Very popular at the end of the afternoon.
Chai Khong Road Chiang Khan

Chai Khong Road

ชายโขง
My opinion :
and its wooden houses. It is the most emblematic street of Chiang Khan. It comes alive in the morning when Buddhist monks are receiving alms from locals and in the evening when the souvenir and clothes shops and restaurants get very crowded. The monks morning tour in Chiang Khan is one of the best known and largest in the country (except special events), especially on Sunday morning when hundreds of Thais come just for the occasion.
Tai Dam Village Chiang Khan

Tai Dam Village

บ้านพิพิธภัณฑ์ไทดำ
My opinion :
The Tai Dam house of Museum located 18 kilometers from Chiang Khan is a kind of eco-museum of this village dedicated to the local community that migrated from Vietnam more than a century ago. You will discover their traditions and participate in folk dances and live beautiful moments with the children happy and proud to introduce you to their culture.

  • Phu Tok
    Phu Tok Mountain, 6 kilometers from Chiang Khan, is known as an extraordinary place to watch the sunrise often on a sea of mist in winter (December to March). At the top, you will find a Buddha image and a footbridge with superb views over the city, the Mekong River and the surroundings. A tuk-tuk ride to the parking where the songthaews going up to the summit park should cost you a hundred baht and then you will hve to pay 25 THB per person to go to the top.
