Along the Mekong from Chiang Khan to Pak Chom, Loei

Loei adjoins the Mekong for a distance of about 96 kilometers from Chiang Khan to Pak Chom. This watercourse is narrow and meandering, on both sides by imposing mountains. The riverbed is filled with small gravel.

Highway 211 along the Mekong River from Nong Khai to Chiang Khan, unquestionably one of the most scenic routes in Thailand, promises a memorable and comfortable drive. Summer time offers even more fascinating scenery, as the low water level in the Mekong reveals hidden islands, islets and sandy beaches along the way. Tourist can also break the journey at many tourist attractions nearby.

From Chiangkhan to Pakchome, it takes about 44 kms.  Along the road is the Khong river and a little village.  Accommodation to be reccommended is "Baan Huai Fad" run and managed by Chakrabongse Palace (in Bangkok).
