Today we had a half day free and easy period to discover Mukdahan, a border town next to Loas. We visit the Indo China Market next to Mekong river. This is basically where people from Thailand and Loas trading their goods.

A lot of speed boat ferrying passenger and goods to and fro the 2 countries.

The Indo China market selling all kinds of goods from food to sundry goods.

My lady shopping again ….

These are the shops next to the Indo China Market.

We left Mukdahan at 12pm and proceed to Ubon Ratchathani. We stop by a river side rest area to have a short break. Fishing is one of the major source of income here as you can see various kind of fish product selling at the store.
