"Quiet little border town" Ban Houayxai by pesky_tourist

Ban Houayxai Travel Guide: 43 reviews and 135 photos

Nice small-town atmosphere with friendly locals, decent choice of food and good views of Thailand and the Mekong. Virtually all of the backpackers I've talked to are only passing through on their way to Thailand or waiting for the boat down the river. A pity as there are a few good sights in and around town if you have time to stay an extra day or two.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Friendly, relaxed atmosphere
