The entry Nong Khai at Wikitravel is perfectly geared towards a would-be visitor to that city. But Nong Khai is also a Province nestled as far north in the Isaan Region as it is possible to get without leaving Thailand and entering the territory of Laos. Refer to Wikipedia to get their rather comprehensive treatment of Nong Khai Province.
A similar treatment is given to a page at Thailand Musings titled Northern Issan – Udon Thani, Nong Khai, Loei. It is claimed that the page will be maintained with currency updates, so let us hope that it is so.
Also take a look at TeakDoor forum’s page on Nong Khai หนองคาย — it provides a lot of links to photos and videos, and offers much other information.
Isan Sawadee.com has a similar guide at their Welcome to Nongkhai… page. Don’t neglect the other Nong Khai links in the column at the left on that page.
Webcams tend to be short-lived ventures, I find, but I will risk it and link to the one at the Nong Khai Hotel Pantawee. It isn’t a “live” webcam; it merely takes a new capture every 30 seconds or so and displays it. I only once saw anything different in the five minutes or so I tuned it in — a man was caught walking up the street. However, it was nigh on 1:30 a.m., so I expect there is not that much activity afoot at that point.
Many websites provide some glimpse of what Nong Khai has to offer — for example, Audley Travel. Obviously, this site provides a service, so it is in their best interest to advertise well as many destinations as they are able. But there are also impressions given of Nong Khai by travelers, and TravelPod is the place to go for some of those travel blogs.
Many other people prefer to maintain their own blog about their travels, as has long-time German couple Vivien and Erhard. They visited Nong Khai at some point and left their brief record.
Now, as a June 25 (2012) edit to this post, here are some further Nong Khai-related references that might catch your interest:

Once upon a time, I was a young boy born to a poor Nong Khai woman who was a seasonal farmer and seasonal Bar girl in Udon Thani during the height of the Vietnam War where The US Air Force operated from what is still known as Udorn …. swimming, planting rice, killing snakes, using a slingshot to hunt lizards, birds and small animals, trapping mice, catching crickets and riding buffaloes– all very useful in daily life on an Isaan Farm on the outskirts of Nongkhai.
