Chiang Khong

One night in Chiang Khong

Chiang Khong is a border crossing to Laos and a sleepy Thai town adjacent to an even more sleepy river. Many travellers don’t even stop in Chiang Khong as their destinations are on the other side of the Friendship Bridge; Huay Xai, the Mekong River and after a boat ride, the serene Luang Prabang.
