Chiang Khan 2012
Chiang Khan use to be a french colony, hence some of the houses here still have some french influence. And other than 2 hotels, everything else in this little town is only at maximum of 2 storeys high. No high rise 5 star hotels or malls spotted here. Wooden Houses and Architecture of Chiang Khan. In some sense, the main walking street from Soi 1 — 25 to be exact even feels like a movie set, with neat little wooden houses parallel to the beautiful Mekong River flowing by the side.
The stunning river that hold the record of being the 10th or 12th longest river in the world. I will share more later. Stunning Mekong River separating Thailand and Laos.

Not your usual ridiculously crowded shopping districts of Bangkok and Phuket with schools of sweaty tourists, this cooling river side night walking street is comfortably busy, with lovely street food stalls selling a range of food quite different from what you can get from the usual touristy parts of Thailand.
There are hippie and vintage shops, souvenir t-shirts, tons of street food stalls with such interesting variety, live music and more. One of the popular sweet snacks of Thailand — Glutionous rice with coconut. My favourite was the Miang Kum Sweet Thai Snack made up of a myriad of flavours from sweet to savoury to spicy.
Some of the ingredients include peanut, ginger, onion, coconut, brown sugar wrapped in a leaf. Utterly yums. Please log in to continue.
