The Mighty Mekong – Our Two Day Voyage

Starting from the Tibetan Plateau, the Mekong River runs through China‘s Yunnan province, BurmaLaosThailandCambodia and ends in Vietnam. The Mekong, in essence, is the source of all life in South East Asia.

We crossed the Mekong when we left Thailand and entered Laos, getting from one bank to the other by long-tail boat. We then took a two day journey down the Mekong starting in the border town of Huoay Xia, travelling 6 hours then staying the night in a town called Pak Beng and finally, the next day, arriving at the city of Luang Prabang after another 6 hour journey down the Mekong river.
