Loei
The Essential
This bustling little town, A centre for cotton production and trade, the town has not lost its rural feel, as can be seen in the market, where you can try the local speciality of barbecued eggs. A few former U.S. soldiers came to live here, hence the presence of some American bars. But for the majority of visitors, Loei is a base for exploring the surrounding national parks: Phu Rua, Phu Luang and especially Phu Kradung.
