Nakhon Phanom, Thailand from 25-29 June 2018.
The northern Thai province, which borders Laos,
is blessed with clean air, rich soil for agriculture, views of the
rolling hills in Laos, an abundance of local attractions and even
a specific temple for each day of the week.

food combined with sumptuous Vietnamese and Laos dishes.
