What to see in Nong Khai

The must do visit in Nong Khai is Sala Kaew Ku (or Wat Kaek the name of Temple). In the park, there are huge cement statues of Buddhas and other figures more or less mythological and religious. A truly amazing place ! Otherwise, the most important temple in the city is Wat Pho Chai. Not very interesting from the outside but its interior with its colorful paintings worth a look. Shopping enthusiasts will go to Tha Sadet market or the night market that is held on Saturday evening. And of course, in the evening, go one Mekong river banks to see the sunset.

Must-visits in Nong Khai

Sala Kaew Ku

ศาลาแก้วกู่
My opinion :
A park with huge amazing cement sculptures. Mix of Buddhism and Hinduism figures and character from its creator's dreams, the aprk houses dozens of statues. The biggest are over 20 meters high. This is the most incredible visit to do Nong Khai ! The park is located a bit outside of the town but is very easy to access.

Sky Walk

วัดผาตากเสื้อ
My opinion :
Recently built at Wat Pha Tak Suea which is located 81 kilometers from Nong Khai, the Sky Walk, a small glass walkway above the void allows you to enjoy even more the exceptional view over Mekong river offered by this temple perched on a mountain.
