A lovely river side location that is surrounded by mountains and has the laidback Laos atmosphere. That is Nong Khiaw for you, tucked in the north east area of Laos. And one can feel and see its beauty when either arriving here by boat or walking on its long bridge.
One side of the river has the guest houses and restaurants facing the river and the other side has the village. One can go swimming here or kayaking in the fast waters, Trekking in the mountains is also a good option. Relaxation is the best bet here. The food here is also fantastic local fare.
