Chiang Khan

Sleepy and attractive, Chiang Khan is almost laid back. There are, however, hordes of Thai tourists (and a few foreigners), that have come to enjoy the Mekong views and the riverside street packed with cute old teak houses. There's not much to do once you've taken that in, but relaxing beside the Mekong with a book and a cold beer is pleasant enough to keep me entertained for days.
