Laos - Slow boat on the Mekong

A travel blog entry by tereza-gonzalo


... or he pretended well he didnīt). We were quite ****** off but there was nothing we could do about it. When we arrived in Chiang Khong there was a local guy waiting for us (we assumed he was working for the agency). We asked him why our driver didnīt allow us to see the temple and he said something about an earthquake and the temple is closed because itīs under reconstruction. Liar!!! In any case we didnīt find out the truth and this "misunderstanding” ...

Laos and the mighty Mekong river.

The shoreline was totally undeveloped in this part of the country - rolling hills, jagged shorelines, isolated villages, fishermen, water ...

Laos: The slow boat to Luang Prabang, via Pak Beng

A travel blog entry by daveandjenna


... as the scenery down the Mekong was supposed to be beautiful.

Our trip began in Thailand, and after being dropped on the Thai side of the river we made our way through emigration quickly - goodbye for the last time, Thailand - before realising we were still some way short of the river. Luckily there was a shuttle bus ferrying people back and forth to Laos immigration, (which you had to get and had to pay B20 for) and we hopped on the already ...
