  • Close to the hotel early in the morning, so I went to Wat chomkao manilat. In the temple on the Hill a little bit up the stairs. After climbing the stairs and Temple. Note that there are lots of dogs. The views can be seen from the Lao side of Mekong River of Thailand. It is very beautiful. Early in the morning, down stairs from temples seen begging column. Here begging people to tourists than many of locals and monks. I think you can see real begging. May be a valuable place are seen as temples and the Mekong rivers and begging. Take a look at the visit?.

Where to stay in Huay Xai

Not known for its selection of accommodations, Huay Xai offers just a few places to stay nestled up against the Mekong. These options remain basic but welcoming and, more importantly, budget friendly. Most visitors choose to stay across the river in the Thai town of Chiang Khong, which offers a much wider range of accommodations. Others continue directly on to other destinations deeper in Laos.
