“Nice view, just relax”
Review of Wat ahong

Wat ahong
Reviewed 4 February 2018

It is not something really exiting, but if you are near make a stop, look and walk around. Enjoy the Mekong (see Laos over the river), make some pictures, just be in peace with the surrounding.

We were attracted by the Navel of Mekong, I could not really spot the navel but the rock formation were quite unexpected. All this is within lush temple ground.

Good place to take a rest from the drive from Nongkhai and Bueng Kan

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.
