Travel Thailand, Nakhon Phanom

Nakhon Phanom on the bank of the Mekong River, opposite Muang Tha Khaek in Laos, has been identified as a preferred gateway to neighbouring Laos and has its own Lao and Vietnamese communities who trade in the town. It has also been selected as the site for the third bridge to span the river. The first is already connection Laos with Nong Khai while the second is under construction at Chiang Khan in Loei province.

Best known for its panoramic views of the Mekong River and the rugged mountains of Laos, it also has religious heritage centering on the province's Phra That Phanom, the most sacred religious structure in the Northeast. Nakhon Phanom is 740 km from Bangkok, 242 km from Udon Thani and 296 km from Nong Khai.

Nakhon Phanom Attractions:
Phra That Phanom is estimated to be about 1,500 years old. The pagoda collapsed in 1975 and has since been rebuilt. The main body of the pagoda is supported by four square bases 12.33 metres wide. The spire is gold and weighs 110 kg. On the full-moon night of the third lunar month (usually February-March) a fair is held in honour of the 57-metre-high Phra That Phanom and is attended by thousands of people from around the country. The pagoda is in That Phanom district, 52 km from town on Highway 212.

Phra That Renu is a revered shrine housing the "Tripitaka" (the Buddhist canon), gold Buddha images and other religious objects. New the shrine is a market selling local handicrafts. The people of Renu Nakhon district still retain local traditions such as bai sri, which involves offering food to welcome visitors. The welcome also includes dinner, locally-made whisky and Renu-style dancing. To get there, take Highway 212 for 44 km until reaching the Renu turnoff; from there it's another 7 km.

Phra That Ta-Uthain is located in Wat Phra that Ta-Uthain, 26 km north of town. The pagoda contains shrines of several Buddhist saints brought from Burma.

Phra That Sri Khoon bears a resemblance to Phra That Phanom. However, the former is supported by only two bases, both of which have decorative stucco carvings. Phra That Sri Khoon, in Na Kae district, it also not quite as tall as Phra That Phanom.

Wat Sila Mongkol in Phra That district house the Museum of Phra Acharn Bua Temiyo. The museum holds relics and various belongings of Phra Acharn Bua Temiyo and Phra Acharn Mun Bhuritatto, both of whom were highly revered by Isan residents. More
