To my mind this bridge and it’s background is the most photogenic of the bridges that have gone across the Mekong in the past 20 some years. The lush treelined bank with the Karst mountains in the background provide a picturesque scene even on an overcast day. The long approach makes dramatic panoramas as well as photospheres. The entire length of road 212 from Nong Khai to Nakhon Phanom, about 300 plus kilometers used to be single lane. The rout while a bit longer is a bit less hectic than the drive from Nong Khai to Udon, then on to Sakon Nakhon and to NKP.. As I have documented over the years there is plenty to see in do in the area, but, unfortunately the town has fallen in the shodow of Mukdahan 100 kilometers down river in my opinion. I will show the rest of the drive in town and along the river in a soon to come post.
