Khong Chiam is a laidback destination along the banks of the Khong River. Here, you can be the first to take in the sunrise before anyone else in Thailand – definitely one of the highlights. This small district in the Ubon Rajathanee province sits across the river from Laos and offers travelers fresh air and untouched nature.
With the natural elements being the greatest draw to Khong Chiam, the viewing points are the place to be. The bridge over the Mun River is both charming and romantic with the sun rising over fishing boats, local life, and the mountain ranges of Laos. A visit to Pha Taem National Park makes for a great day trip and offers another scenic point where the sun rises over the hillsides and the Khong River. The Soi Sa-wan waterfall within the park is a great spot to head for after celebrating being the first to catch the light of day. Milling about the morning market with the locals introduces you to the local culture and lifestyle, and a breakfast here can be exactly what you need to kick off your day.
