Along the Mekhong River Nong Khai town to Mukdahan, Thailand along the old hippy trail

nkp-13Yesterday I documented the trip from Chiang Khan, Loei to Sri Chiangmai, Nong Khai.In this episode you can get a look at the river from Nong Khai town to Mukdahan.  This time of year, winter season the river begins to reach its lowest levels and rapids and beaches line the banks. Many people cycle the whole route as it is generally flat and traffic is not to bad. The river is generally wide and flat through this region, with mountains appearing in laos near Beung Kan and down along the east bank to Mukdahan and onwards. I will soon be doing some posts with map information, as my maps are the only ones that show a majority of the sites along the way. Plenty of chances to meet the people of the region, enjoy the food and see the sites along one of the worlds famous rivers. Just be careful along the roads and find someplace to sleep as it turns dark early winters in Isaan
