Meaningless borders in Loei

Traveling in Thailand
Thai - Lao border in Loei province, North-East Thailand

Reposting from 2016. Photo above is the border between Laos and Thailand at Na Heao in Loei province. Here the border follows the Hueang River and on the Lao side of the border is Muang Pheir (Laos). But as there is no temple or school the Lao people come daily to Na Heao. At the day I was there it was Wan Phra (once a week it is Buddha day). So many Lao people were crossing the border to go to the temple together with Lao children to go to school. And from Thailand to Laos were also brought new construction materials like roof parts. And it seems that in Laos there is no recycling opportunity as old steel (old motorbike parts) were brought from Laos to Thailand. Once a week there is a market at the Thai side. Although there is a immigration office this border is (officially) of course only for locals (Thai and Lao).
