Some words about the Mekong


After evaluating the other options (a 2 day slow boat packed with about 100 tourists or a 6 hour, 6 person speedboat/deathtrap combo) we decided on a one day, 11 hour slow boat trip down the Mekong to Louang Probang with about 30 other people. I HIGHLY recommend this option. Laos is a country of extremely beautiful scenery and the trip was one of the most incredible I have ever had. See the pics for more, as they will tell the story better than I ever could.
