Overnight in Chiang Khan

In 2015 we made a trip from Khon Kean to Khao Kho and Phu Ruea and we ended up in Chiang Khan. This time not in an weekend or holiday and not while all Bangkok was flooded. So despite that Chiang Khan has became touristic, it was like a nice laid down place should be : laid down. The main street is still like a kind of living-room for the locals. We had no reservation for a hotel so we had a look at a few hotels along the mighty Mae Nam Khong (Mekong River). There are many hotels and in the week-days the most are not even 50% full (some are even closed). Hotels tend to be a bit expensive in Chiang Khan, and in the weekend the prices will even be higher. We did finally choose the then brand new Sri Chiang Khan Hotel.
