I always love riding alongside the Mekong & Chiang Khong is my fave spot on the 'Khong. The Mekong river's always changing up & down, & colours. If you're like me & miss the 'Khong & views of it, here's what is was like on Saturday 19th July 2008. Houei Xai (Laos) from Tammila guesthouse, Chiang Khong. Yes, it was raining & the river's up. The view downstream, from Tammila Mouang Khan from the Huai Sai Mann viewpoint, 16 kms north of Chiang Khong.
