a shot from the boat's toilet
Though the adventure of the boat trip from Northern Thailand into the heart of Laos was a bit overrated, I would have to say it was a great way to enter the country. My initial impressions were ones of a great gentle beauty. It is, however, a long and tedious trip. The boat itself is not super comfortable especially on such a long haul though by no means the torture advertised.
It takes two full days to get to Luang Prabang from the Laos/Thailand border so plan on spending the night in Pak Beng. The price can vary quite a bit so be strong and shop around. It should be around 260,000 KIP ($25).
