The mighty Mekong River at the Golden Triangle
My beloved Mekong River again, this time seen at the infamous Golden Triangle. Looking north over the Mekong River in direction of China (only 250km). On the left side you see Burma (now called Myanmar) and on the right side you Laos. This is the point where the Mekong River becomes the border between Laos and Thailand for the first time. The photo under is a Buddha image welcoming the Mekong River as border from Thailand. A same kind of Buddha image can be found near Chiang Khan in Loei province where the Mekong River becomes a border between Laos and Thailand for the second time.
