This is a good base from which to explore Isaan, the North-East of Thailand, and the only place in Isaan at which you can cross the river into neighbouring Laos by using the so-called Friendship Bridge in Nong Khai town. The scenery around Nong Khai and along the Maekhong river is very beautiful and worth checking out. Outside of Nong Khai is Wat Khaek (also known as Salaa Kaew Kuu), a zany Buddhist-Hindu scupture park worth a visit.
