Khon Kaen to Nong Khai

 Leaving Khon Kaen to Nong Khai, in our hire car (ex-Pattaya)...obviously, I'm the back seat driver.

Our hotel in Nong Khai, the Mekong Guesthouse. Wonderful! The room was spacious, nice...but, a tip, don't stay on the ground floor...Thai plumbing/drainage, not so good, lol. 

Lovely view and restaurant out the back, over looking the Mekong and right on top of the night market (either Saturday or Sunday nights...can't recall), but not noisy.

Looking across the Mekong at Laos.

The night market stretched along the river behind our hotel. Head north and you'll find even more bargains and tasty treats, in the street at the end.

 Tomorrow...the Buddha Park, Nong Kai.

I've been to Nong Khai many, many times. It's a bit quiet nightlife wise but a lovely place to visit. How much was the hotel?

@Martyn Hi Martin, can't remember exactly, but knowing us, probably no more than 600 Baht ;)

@Tom Yam Hi! I make sporadic sales on Zazzle, I don't devote any time it any more...maybe when I retire from my blackboard business ;)
