About travel to Nakhon Phanom
Nakhon Phanom is a small town with population of just over 27,000 permanent resident which is scenically located on the south bank of the mighty Mekong River in the North East of Thailand. Laos is located on the other side of the river and travellers can take a bus across the Third Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge from Nakhon Phanom Bus Station direct to Thakhek in Laos, which is the starting point for a popular 3 days motorbike tour route. Nakhon Phanom has a few points of interest, as well as being a lively and pleasant place to spend a few days. From Nakhon Phanom there is a popular bicycle route along the river which runs several kilometre to the bridge passing some historic buildings along the way. In the town itself the major attractions are house that Vietnamese revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh once lived in and the recently constructed Naga Monument on the riverbank in the centre of the town.
By far the most popular attraction in the area, Wat Phra That Phanom, is located 58.3 km by road to the south of Nakhon Phanom town in That Phanom. Shared taxi services to That Phanom depart frequently from Nakhon Phanom town centre and cost only 40 THB one way. The hour long journey is well worth making as Wat Phra That Phanom is one of Thailand’s most interesting temples. The main feature of the temple is its white 57 metre tall chedi tower which is believed to contained an important holy relic. Wat Phra That Phanom has plenty of other points of interest, particularly its many gold Buddha statues, and a distinctly carnival like atmosphere year round. A common belief is that visiting the temple on 7 separate occasions will result in a person being blessed with a happy and prosperous life.
