The small place is relatively quiet and has plenty of accommodation for domestic tourism. Many Thais, partially from Bangkok, come on weekends or holidays to spent some time here. For Thailand, the accommodation is relatively high-priced. Western tourists are rather seldom to see.
The surrounding landscapes with their hills and mountains are picturesque, as well as the Mekong River here is. Along the river promenade are several touristic restaurants. The land on the other side of the river belongs to Laos.
