    4 good choices
    The Baan Maitri - the best THai food
    Rin's Bar - big servings of farang "pub food."
    Bamboo Mexican - the best fresh Mexican food anywhere on the Mekong
    Pan Pan - guesthouse & restaurant open late at night when the others have closed

    BAAN MAITRI
    [​IMG]
    The Baan Maitri restaurant has the best Thai food in town.
    It is riverside, downstream from the customs office & between the Rim Nam & Rim Khong restaurants.

    PAN PAN
    Late at night in Chiang Khong most of the riverside restaurants are closed by 9-9.30PM, with most of their business done late afternoon – dusk – early evening.

    If you get caught out, then give the Pan Pan Guesthouse – Restaurant a go.

    Its cheap ‘n cheerful

    & damn good food – as we found out = worthy of a return.

    Chiang Khong Night Life
    The Wua Han Sankhampang is the adult night spot for a late night out in CK.
    No delinquent teenagers. The customers here are hospital staff / teachers / govt officials.
    The music rocks & the WHS is always tops for a good night out in CK.

    Khun Nit is the owner
    [​IMG]
    & in the day time doubles as a CK town policeman & he’s a good one. Very popular & honest.
    He’s been a long time GTR friend for several years so you all be good in CK now.

    The Wua Han has moved location, across the street & further out of town, (opposite Jan Yim)
    A much bigger, smarter, more upmarket, cool place.
