Huai Kon - Muang Ngeun border crossing between Thailand and Laos (Google maps)
List of Thailand borders | All interactive maps
Relatively new border crossing between Thailand and Laos. In the past it was only for Thais and Laos but it has now been open to foreigners with "special permit". Huai Kon district is in Nan province of northern Thailand - a hills region where you still do not see as many foreign tourists as in other places of Thailand. Muang Ngun in Xayabouri province of Laos is linked to Hongsa by dirt road. From Hongsa it is possible to go down to the Mae Kong river either to Ban Houay Khong (1.5 hr by boat downstream of Pakbeng) or Paklong (1 hr by boat downstream of Luang Prabang). Updated March 2011.
