    I remember in Nakhon Phanom in the 1980's, Thakek used to blast propaganda across the Mae Nam Khong in the evenings. 30 years later, it's tit for TAT :) (Groan)
    That should be a grand evening.

    The venue for the 2019 Chiang Khong Music Fest has changed to the old immigration boat landing / new Chiang Khong boat pier, which will open in a few weeks.

    The venue as of today with some construction still ongoing.

    The Tha Pha Tang pier downstream, was the prefered location, but once this New Boat Pier is finished, construction will move downstream right along the river to make a new stone embankment as in many other places along the Mekong.

    The TAT Chiang Rai made the inspection again today, and they are as excited about the event as GTR is.
    So mark it down in your calendar please: 21 December 2019, the Chiang Khong Music Fest, riverside by the Mekong @ Chiang Khong.
