Above: Saturday market in Nong Khai with sunset views over the Mekong.
Update: We are really enjoying Nong
Khai. Every day we wake up to clear skies and temperatures in the mid 20s. Unlike Bangkok and Hua Hin the weather is very pleasant. It's a quiet town, the liveliest time is Saturday night which is market night along the riverside promenade. That's when you run into everyone in town.
The cost of staying in this little paradise? We're paying 8,000 Baht a month for our apartment,
that's $290 Canadian. But that's because its high season. Our rent will go down to 6,000 Baht ($218) in February. So much cheaper than either Bangkok or Hua Hin.
I'll be doing a post in the next little while on Nong Khai.
