This temple is very interesting in making Buddhist goddess images into a sculpture garden. Travelers who do not have background and interest folklore story of Lord Buddha can find the sculpture garden entertaining. It is located only a few kilometers from the center of town. Travelers who have interest in Buddhist folklore can learn some from the inscription on each images.

Issan Rum Distillery Agricultural Rum 100 % Sugarcanne juice Awarded at HKIWSC and Rhum Fest PARIS Free Tour of the distillery and pacefull tasting room
Brief mentions of this attraction in a guidebook lead to a search for more information. We found this on a personal blog - “Head south from Nong Khai towards Udon Thani on Highway 2 and after the Caltex Petrol station on your left take the second road on the left and follow the road roughly 2 km, you will then arrive at Issan Rum.” These directions were good enough but here are the coordinates if you have a GPS at hand - 17 degrees 47' 05" N 102 degrees 46' 39". David the French distiller was away but his wife Lek showed us around, explained the process and prepared some samples for our tasting. Delicious! Way better than the higher priced Chalong Bay premium Thai rum. Way better! Purchased a case to share with friends and hope to get more in future. Totally small batch, handcrafted, high quality product. If you like unique drinks this one is worth the adventure!

Often, many out of town travelers may get a little confused with the term. Thasadet Market is known by locals as "pedestrian open night market" which is open on the river walk on Saturday only or we may classified it as night bazaar. The other one is the gift market (covered) on the road side is known as "Talad Indochine) which opens everyday with gift shops, food and drinks. the river boardwalk or as know in Thai language is "ตลาดคนเดิน). If you are in the city of Nong Khai on Saturday, the river walk is quite popular area with many activities till late at night. Get there and enjoy yourself with food, drinks, and some other entertainment. It is located at the tourist attraction Thasadet Pier.

This long, impressive bridge opened in 1994, funded by the Commonwealth Government of Australia.
At the time provision was made for a single rail track.
I photographed one of the two daily trains each way that run from Nong Khai's station to Laos, but only to that country's border station.

There is nothing much to do in Nong Khai so a browse through this shopping market is entertaining. The tuk tuk driver told me that ThaSadet means the kings market.However to me its nothing more then just another shopping area selling stuff from China.You can find some local wares n handicrafts.Interesting thing is that u can find weaoons like tiny shurekens,daggers,swords to bb guns ,guns selling without any control.
Food in the morning market is worth a visit.

the temple itself has nothing much to talk about, but its location being by the bank of the river where it is believed to be the deepest spot of the mighty Mekhong is remarkable. besides, the nearby rock park where there are several red and sand rock formations emerging from the ground of a well maintained and decorated park is stunning.

Wat Phra That Bang Phuan is one of Nong Khai region most sacred temples and located on a prominent hill. The stupa is 34 meters high and stands on a 17-square meters base. The Phra That is said to contain 29 Buddha relics of which one is a sacred bone of the Lord Buddha. The original pagoda dates back to ancient times.
The Lao King of Lan Chang, Sai Setthathirath I or Setthavong (1534–1572), was a profound Buddhist and erected many Buddhist monuments such as Wat Xieng Thong in Luang Prabang and the Phra That Luang in Vientiane. After having moved his capital from Luang Prabang to Vientiane in the mid-16th century, King Setthathirath ordered here a stupa built over the ancient one as a demonstration of his faith. Setthathirath's pagoda became heavily damaged over the years and toppled in 1970. The stupa was renovated by the Fine Arts Department in 1976-77.
We biked from Nong Khai to Wat Phra That Bang Phuan and back. It took us a bit more than two hours, including the visit of the temple site. It is a nice and tranquil place. We would classify this for foreign visitors with an interest in old temples and history.

As a native of Nong Khai and travel back home often, I think the Nak (naga) head in TripAdvisor is in correct, that is the one in front of the old city hall. The Lan Phaya Nak is the one with two big green Nakas on the river walk near the Sadet Peir. Naka is consider the symbol of Nong Khai. The Lan Phaya Nak is a big plaza on the river walk and is slated for many local and officials activities. It is the best spot to see the view of the Mekhong River; of both Laos and Thailand. Great place to be both day time and at night. A very photo op area of being in Nong Khai.
