With its traditional wooden houses, this is the emblematic street of Chiang Khan. This is also where most guesthouses and homestays (Bed & Breakfast) are located. But more important, it is in this street that every morning the monks from the city's bouddhist temples come to receive the rice, food and flowers donations locals or tourists give to them. This alms offerings exists throughout Thailand but In Chiang Khan it probably is the most spectacular one.
It is also in Chai Khong Road that all the little shops selling all kinds of products dedicated to Chiang Khan and restaurants with terrace facing the river are. Between shopaholics and those looking for a dinner in a pleasant setting (although these restaurants are often very crowded and therefore noisy), the street is very busy at night especially on weekends and holidays. But no doubt you will like go shopping there and buy some souvenirs.
