Bueng Kan was split off from Nong Khai province in 2011 to become Thailand's newest province. It features a wildlife preserve along the Mekong River and a quiet border crossing into Laos. The province's most famous attraction is Wat Phu Tok, a temple built on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Mekong plain that is accessible only by a steep and difficult climb. Monks come from all over Thailand to meditate in the various huts and caves that dot the mountain.
