During the months from January to May when the Mekong river level resides to its lowest, the Jomanee  ( Joe-mar-nee ) beach  appears near the Friendship Bridge, 2km west of town. Food and drink vendors readily provide mats, shade and music for the hundreds of locals - and two or three tourists - who patronise their stalls. An excellent spot to watch the sunset.
