Mae Nam Khong - The Mother of Water

As frequent travellers to Asia we have been at the Mekong river numerous times and it has never stopped to impress us. The mighty river is the 12th longest river worldwide and the 7th longest in Asia. 


We went to a lot of points along the river from the Thai side, so naturally we called it Mae Khong or Mae Nam Khong. แม่น้ำโขง in Thai, or ແມ່ນ້ຳຂອງ in Lao language. In June 2012 we did see the "Great River" in Cambodia, where it is called មេគង្គ in Khmer language. 
 
There is still many places along the Mekong where we have not been yet, but with this blog we are starting our journey along the spectacular points of the river we enjoyed so far.
