Can't beat a river cruise on the Mekong River. Only way to do it. Great way to see the countryside. Make sure you bring insect repellent, binoculars, suitable clothing, footwear and a good camera. Highly recommend it!

I took the local slow boat from Huay xai to Luang Prabang, taking 2 days with overnight stay in Pakbeng.
