Meaningless borders in Loei
This is the border between Laos and Thailand at Na Heao (Loei province). The border follows here the Hueang River. On the other 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 we were 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.
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) was brought from Laos to Thailand. Sometimes 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).
