This rates as probably my favourite spot in northern Thailand. A beautiful temple surrounded by wonderful by some luscious green grounds and somewhat fascinating rock formations which just don't look part of the area. You can stroll along the river and sit in the shade in some small cabins and view a few fishermen in the river. The river is very narrow here and then widens out considerably, apparently in the rainy season it can be very fast flowing here and a whirlpool forms.
This is just one of those places where you can sit down in very peaceful and serene surroundings.

This wat is grand with large strange rock formations. It is so close to Laos that you feel you are in Laos. Walk through the rock formations, walk into town and find great food, relax and meditate on the Mekong river waters.
