Where to stay in Nong Khai

Many accommodations in Nong Khai gather along Mekong River, close to popular attractions and convenient shopping options. The city's well-developed tourism industry has produced plenty of lodgings alternatives, from budget hostels to five-star hotels, but the least expensive rooms often skimp on amenities like air conditioning and hot water. If you plan to spend time sightseeing in Nong Khai, keep in mind that most hotels offer affordable bicycles for rent.
