This delightful tranquil setting surrounded by greenery is a far cry from the hectic hustle and bustle of modern Thailand. Despite the economic possibilities resulting from its proximity to Laos and Vietnam, That Phanom is still mainly an important pilgrimage site visited by thousands of Thai and Laotian worshippers every year. In addition to visiting the splendid Wat Phra That Phanom, it's also worth taking the time to admire the old wooden houses in the town centre, which give That Phanom a charming traditional atmosphere.
