NONG KHAI
 
Nong Khai is a Northeastern borderland on the right side of Mekhong River, at Thai - Laos border. This land was a gift to Thao Suwa A-tham, who had beaten King Anuwong of Vientaine and had brought back Thai people that were caught there in 1826. Ban Phai is the first center of this town, in 1827.
 
In 1891, this area was a center of Lao Phruan people. Two years later, the left side of Mekhong River was given to French and this town had been moved to Ban Mak Khaeng village which later was the Udon circle. The lieutenant governor of a circle was abolished in 1933 and Nang Khai was established as a province.

Northern area of Nong Khai is a basin of Mekhong River. Eastern area is a highland and forest. The West is a range of mountain and forest, stretching to Loei. The South is high 1,200 feet from the sea level.

Nong Khai's summer is very hot, average temperature is 35 Celcius. The rain hardly falls in its season and it is very cool in the cool season. Lowest temperature is about 11 Celcius. The Thai-Laos Bridge at Mekhong River and the highly revered Phra Sai Buddha image are famous traveling place here.
