Maha Sarakham is actually the Buddhist center of Isaan, as many Buddhist archaeological artifacts are found here, which include relics of Lord Buddha in Na Dun district. Maha Sarakham’s central location is a convenient base from which travelers can explore Thailand’s neighboring countries, which are Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Directly east is Friendship Bridge Two, spanning the Mekong River at Mukdahan, where one can cross a narrow section of Laos and be in Hue, Vietnam by the end of the day. One can also travel south to Si Saket where it is now easy to cross the border to Cambodia, relatively close to Siem Reap. Four hours north, at Nong Khai, one can cross the original Friendship Bridge into Laos, from which point is only 22 km to the capital city of Vientiane.
