Thakhek (Muang Khammouane)
The Essential
Standing languidly on the banks of the Mekong, Thakhek is both a transit town and an ethnic melting pot. It is located 3hr by road from Vietnam and a stone's throw from Nakhon Phanom (Thailand), which is lit up on the opposite bank every evening. Despite a lack of attractions for tourists, the capital of Khammouane province acts as a base for exploring the numerous caves in the surrounding area.
