Nong Khiaw (Nong Kiau) is a rustic little town on the bank of the Ou River in Laos. It is squeezed in between some of the most fantastic limestone mountains to be found north of Vang Vieng.

You can walk around Nong Khiaw or rent a bike at the Riverside Bungalows to explore the area.

Money can be changed at Youth travel agency which is near the boat landing or over the bridge at Riverside Guest House. More money changers are at the Post office and Nong Kiau Riverside. There are no ATMs here, but Nong Kiau Riverside offers cash advance on credit card if phone lines are working.

Deen Restaurant serves Indian and Lao food abnd gets good reports. It is located 100 m after the bridge on the right, Tel. (856-20)2148895 (if you ever feel like calling).

Cold beer is served everywhere in local restaurants and of course with a bit more flair and style at the little Cinema near the bus station. The small shops sell cheap but decent Lao Lao in unlabeled bottles, probably homemade.

Wireless Internet is available at Nong Kiau Riverside, on the other side of the bridge. It works via satellite - which means it doesn't when the weather is bad.
