Luang Prabang Transportation: 69 reviews and 83 photos
If you wanna go out of LP by boat, there are mainly 2 kinds:
- Slow Boats, the traditional ones.
- Speed Boats, modern powerful off-shore motors.
With both you can go up the river to the Thai border or down the river to Vientiane.
The slow boats do this in 3-4 days, they take their time and have frequent stops. Take your own food if you choose this, as there is not always restaurants on the way.
The speed boats are HIGHLY DANGEROUS, as they go fast as hell by the river, and the Mekong is a dangerous river. You have to wear a helmet in these, and is kind of extreme sport. They do the same routes in 8-9 hours!!!! so imagine...
