Nakhon Phanom is a beautiful and bicycle friendly city with plenty of options for rentals and kilometers of bicycle tracks running right along the edge of the Mekong river. From here you can peer directly in to Laos and the beautiful mountains in the background. In the morning the sun rises behind the mountains and in the evening, the sunset highlights them orange.
The popular part of the track is around 1km either side of the clock tower where you’ll be able to stop for a beer or some food at the night market, visit several temples and see the Naga Monument.
Bicycle rentals start around 50 baht per day for something simple and increase from there. Our hotel NJ Residence was in a perfect location to cycle every day and provided the bicycle for free up to one hour and charged in increments up to 80 baht per day after that.
