Chao Mae Song Nang Phi Nong Shrine
Chao Mae Song Nang Phi Nong Shrine is located near the Mukdahan Immigration Bureau. It was originally built of wood and rebuilt later with concrete. There are no records regarding the shrine’s origins but there is legend says that two Laotian princesses boarded a boat to Mukdahan but an accident in the river lost their lives therefore, a shrine was built by a seven-topped sugar palm tree in the same time that the Mukdahan city was constructed by Chao Kinnari. Both the Chaomae Song Nang Phi Nong and Chaopho Chaofa Mung Mueang Shrines are twin sacred icons of the city. Every year, on the full moon day of the sixth lunar month, around May, a celebration for both shrines will be held.
Mukdahan Night Market
Mukdahan's night market is the most buzzing place in town for evening food. It has all the Thai and Isan classics, but it is the Vietnamese vendors that set it apart. A few sell băhn dah (they will tell you it is 'Vietnamese pizza'), which combines soft noodles, pork, spring onions and an optional egg served on a crispy cracker.
Wat Sri Mongkol Tai
Wat Sri Mongkol Tai is ancient temple built in Thonburi period located on Samran Chai Khong Road of Mukdahan. Inside the temple is enshrined of Phra Chao Ong Luang, the province’s important image of the Lord Buddha. Phra Chao Ong Luang was discovered by the first lord of Mukdahan while overseeing the construction of the city. The temple was built to house the sacred 2.2 meters in length and 2 meters in height. The temple also owns another image of a steel Buddha with its top part protruding from beneath a Bodhi Tree.
It is nothing flash, but for some this is Mukdahan's best Vietnamese restaurant, with standout spring rolls as well as soups, noodle dishes, savoury pancakes and 'Vietnamese pizza'. No English sign, and no English spoken, but there is an English menu with photos.
The Princess Mother Park - Woraphat Base
The Princess Mother Park was used as a military base during 1977 to 1983, when there was a strong conflict between the Communist Party of Thailand and the government. Today, the base is used as a historical site for tourism and occupational training for locals.
The base comprises a royal pavilion of the Princess Mother, the Princess Mother’s statue, bunker, and historical building where HRH the late Princess Mother and HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana stayed on 5 - 7 June 1977 during their trip to visit the state officials, military officers, and people in the area. It is Thailand’s only military base that HRH the Princess Mother and HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana spent overnight.
