Travel Thailand, Mukdahan

Mukdahan's provincial town will adopt a higher profile in travel once a bridge across the Mekong River links Isan's heartland with Laos.

Currently it is one of four official border checkpoints to Laos with a bustling cross-river trade using ferries. Mukdahan, formerly a district in Nakhon Phanom, became a province in 1980.

It is 642 km from Bangkok by taking Highways 2 and 212, or 190 km from Khon Kaen.

Mukdahan Attractions:
Chao Fa Muang Muang Shrine in Mukdahan is the town's sacred guardian. Located on Song Nang Sathit Road, the shrine also houses the former city pillar
(Lak Muang).

Phra Chao Ong Luang Buddha at Wat Si Mongkon Tai is sculptured from bricks and predates the founding of the town.

Luang Pho Yai at Wat Phu Dan Tae is a large Buddha in sermon poise. It is clearly visible on a hilltop, 30 km from town, on Highway 2034.

Mukdahan National Park (also known as Phu Pan and Phu Mu national parks) starts 4 km south of town and covers a 49 sq km area of deciduous forest. Its unusual rock formations and Buddhist sites attract visitors as much as the sight of wildlife including barking deer, wild pig, mouse deer, wild fowls and peacocks.

Natural attractions include the rock formation at Phu PhaTerb, 16 km from town on the Mukdahan-Don Tal Road that was formed by erosion. At Phu Nang Hong the rock formation is in the shape of a swan. Pilgrims visit Phu Tham Phra, a secluded cave with multicolored formations, waterfalls and springs. A sitting Buddha shrines stands at the southern part of the camber. A rock shelter on the mountain peak of Phu Manorom is also noted for its replica of the Lord Buddha's footprint. But equally impressive is the panoramic view of the Mekong River and Savannakhet in Laos.

Tad Ton Waterfall offers shade and natural beauty, 16 km from town, off the Kham Cha-ih-Kuchi Narai highway.

Kaeng Kabao, 8 km north of Wan Yai, is a scenic spot on the banks of the Mekong River where travelers can sit on the grassy bank and view the rapids.

Boat Races are held in October at the end of the Buddhist Lent. Mukdahan celebrates with colorful races on the Mekong River and competitions for the best-looking boat. Laotians join the festivities and compete alongside their neighbors.

Mukdahan is home to several minority groups from Laos. An annual fair is organized to display handicrafts and promote cross-border cultural exchange. The tamarind fruit, for which Mukdahan is famous, plays a prominent role in the fair.

The Indochina's or Mekong Region Market on Samran Chai Kong Road in the town centre was established as a trading post for produce from neighboring countries. Goods come from as far as Vietnam and China.
