Along the mighty Mekhong river at Chiang Khan

Traveling in North-East Thailand
The Mekong River at Chiang Khan in North-East Thailand

A bit late sunrise in 2015 about 5 km east of Chiang Khan at Kaeng Kood Koo, where the mighty Mae Nam Khong (Mekong River) makes a sharp turn. And in the water are many big rock, that according to a local legend are put in the water by an angry giant. From here you can make small boat trips over the river. And of course there is a market, restaurants and even a nice looking resort Chiang Khan Hill Resort. Traveling along the Mekong River in Thailand, Laos or Cambodia is like time-traveling. From Kaeng Kood Koo  it is only 55 km to Tha-Li the international border crossing-point to Laos and only 425 km to Luang Prabang (the old capital of Laos).
