Buses leave regularly for Phon Phisai from the Nong Khai bus terminal, as well as other nearby cities throughout the Isan region.
Phon Phisai village is small, so it is easy to walk across town. Tuk-Tuk can also be found, usually idling near the bus depot.
On the last day of Buddhist lent, usually around October, Phon Phisai is a great spot to watch the Maekong fireballs. These strange fiery balls of unknown origin attract large crowds of visitors each year.
Several ADSL Internet Cafes can be found in Phon Phisai.
