Nakhon Phanom, once the centre of the ancient Sri Kotrabun Kingdom, lies along the western bank of the majestic Mekong River, although over the centuries it has moved back and forth across the river. The lovely setting of Nakhon Phanom town is enhanced by the rugged beauty of the jungle-covered mountains that lie beyond the town of Thakaek on the Laotian side of the river. King Rama I chose the name Nakhon Phanom, City of mountains, because of the remarkable mountains found in the province.
Partly a result of its long History, Nakhon Phanom is a melting pot of diverse ethnic Cultures and traditions, particularly represented by the Lao, who have lent a strong influence to the architecture, customs, and CUISINE of Nakhon Phanom, including the Bai-Sri-Su-Kwan welcoming ceremony.
Throughout the history of Nakhon Phanom, Laotians and people from smaller ethnic minority groups migrated across the Mekong River giving modern Nakhon Phanom a distinctive cultural Fusion that is apparent in the Local language, customs, and cuisine. Visitors can appreciate this culture during the Bai-Sri-Su-Kwan ceremony or by witnessing one of the region’s folk dances, such as the Sri Kotrabun, Fon Phu Thai, Sek-Ten-Sak, and So Tung Bung, some of which are only performed on special occasions.
