Mukdahan Tower

Skyhigh views with a touch of history

What we say: 3.5 stars

Views of the Mekong and across to Savannakhet are worth the 50 baht entrance fee, although the air-con top floor being encased in tinted windows doesn't help. The foyer and ground floor contain a collection of tribal wares and costumes from the area along with a selection of ancient pottery and interesting objects like an eagle trap, an elephant net and battle spears used when a tribe from southern China invaded the area in the late 1800s.

The second floor is home to a display on Mukdahan, including some century-old photos of the tribal groups along with displays of their clothing, various records of officialdom, a mouse deer skull, tiger tooth charm and a really cool palm-leaf recipe book.

The very top floor has a Buddha shrine but the views aren't great from here due to the shrine being caged in with steel bars.
