Sunset cruises

The Mekong at its best

More on Nong Khai
When weather cooperates (and it usually does during dry season), this nightly cruise provides an ideal way to watch as the sunset melts into the twinkling lights of two different countries.
Travelfish says:

The relaxing hour-long cruise embarks at 17:30 daily from Nagarina restaurant, located at the bottom of stairs descending from Mut Mee Guesthouse. The boat goes up the river to the Friendship bridge and back. Aside from the picturesque views, the sunset cruise allows for the opportunity to enjoy an early meal from Nagarina’s excellent kitchen. 

Reasonably priced and authentic Thai and Lao-Isaan food is on offer, from family-style shared meals to simple individual dishes. The ride itself is 100 baht per person, a very fair price by any standard. If you’re simply looking to have a drink and enjoy the sunset, arriving around 17:00 is fine, though it’s wise to stop by a bit earlier to reserve if you have a larger party.

Transport information

About 100 metres west of Nong Khai pier, you reach the boat from the Nagarina Restaurant at the bottom of the staircase at the western limit of Rimkhong Road (on the river in front of Mutmee Guesthouse).
