easy to do the rayong nong khai bus passes buy central bus station just over dignornely from the complex 50 baht to nong khai third road bus station in luxury and a short journey compared to the old clapped out non air i think i am getting soft in my old age

but the air buses run pretty regular but its still worth checking the times a short wait could be offset buy a cold one in mojos our steves bar ok well i made it to nong khai  if its you first time there i would head for the river to get orientated

basically you have the river and a row of restaurants then a road behind that that runs the full length of the boardwalk broken only buy the Indochina covered market then a couple more road and buildings separating them running adjacent to the river

nong khai is easy to find your way round most people stick around the first and second road where you will find Brendon's bar a few hundred meters past the covered market the bridge side Brendon's bar
