Looks the same as it did 50 years ago when I was there with the 56th Air Commando Wing fighting the Secret War in Laos.

Love seeing the bustling of Nakhon Phanom locals. The market is suitable for food lover and fashionista. It does carry a few pub and restaurant for night owls. It is quite a scene to spend time along Mekong River.
