The objective of this study was to present the geopolitics between the border of Thailand and Lao PDR in the special economic zone of Mukdahan, Thailand; and Savan-Seno, Lao PDR. This paper is a part of the Tourism Development Model towards Thai – Lao: Case Study of Nakhon Phanom-Khammouan-Mukdahan-Savannakhet-Seno Special Economic Zone. The Author used geopolitics as the main analyzed concept to indicate that to be a border town nowadays does not overshadow the government role. The role was changed to support capitalism in neoliberal globalization that necessarily affected the daily life of both Thai and Lao people.
