Baan Woen Buek On the Mekhong

In Amphor Khong Chiam, Ubon Ratchathani lies the last town on the river in Thailand. While the location market by TAT is correct, the vital information to get to the river is missing. You will drive onto the Woen Buek schoolyard and at the end of the driveway see a bamboo gate and the river in the background. You can then wander through the cattle and that which follows cattle (aka cowpies) down to the river OR you can back up a bit and take the small lane on your left if you are facing toward the river or your right if you are leaving the schoolgrounds to the place pictured here. This is another exaple of signage and directions in Thailand that get you "NEARLY' to what you are looking for, but never get you quite there. The place is definitely worth a stop if you are touring the area or a planning to BBQ some fish.
