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.
