The low water level allowed the stupa to emerge and appear at a height of two meters. Visitors can also see a replica of the stupa on the bank, located adjacent to the one in the river.
Up on the mountain, the Sky Walk observation terrace in NongKhai has been popular with the public coming to see the bird’s-eye view of the Mekong River, a natural border between Thailand and Laos.
The scenery here is even more picturesque in the morning with a regular sea of fog, although the fog was not so dense this morning.
