Mukdahan has its history dating from the late Ayutthaya period, over two centuries ago. Firstly, the province was inhabited by Ban Luang Phon Sin community ruled by Chao Chan Suriyawong. A new town called “Mukdahan” was built on the right bank of the Mekong River by his son named Chao Kinnari in 1767 and completed in 1770. In 1907, Mukdahan was an Amphoe of Nakhon Phanom province and became Mukdahan province in 1982.

Almost Mukdahan’s area is covered with thick dense forest and mountains. It’s an agricultural province with high plateau. Being a riverside province, Mukdahan features a lot of picturesque sceneries, fantastic natural rock parks and beautiful views. The province is also famed for its sweet tamarind, spectacular mountains, origin of Phaya River, picturesque Monorom Mount, valuable ancient drums and beautiful Kra Bao Islet. It has the mixture of interesting cultures and diversified tribes since ancient times. It also hosts abundant natural beauty.
