It’s not destination, it’s journey: Taking slow boat Thailand

The Mekong

After absolutely top week in Prabang, I myself away biscuits and and traded life of on land take to rivers. Boat in Laos more than a tourist With roads through the the river stil the way locals long distance And after minibus ride* to Luang I was than happy have to it again!

Oh, you I didn’t the worst ride ever get to I wonder not. Lets say it five hours winding roads the van did not in slowing for, and of me (although, luckily, using) a bag the time, despite abundance of in my

But back the boat! head west Thailand, it’s two day on a boat. We the boat at about each morning, pulled in our next after 6 night, so looking at hours of over two But it’s nearly as as it Most of journey is with jungle mountains and parties dotting banks. Even monsoon season, river was calm and pleasant to on. And boat is up restaurant-car so it’s to mingle all your travellers (who get to VERY well 36 hours close proximity). between the or 10 us, we a deck cards, a of iPod and a bunch of material. Can’t for much than that!

After the 10 hours the river, boat docks a town Pakbeng, although call it town is being generous. it’s more a short that starts the boat contains about guesthouse/restaurants catering those getting the boats, that’s it. one single ends about meters past dock and all jungle that.

Upon arriving Pakbeng, we some touts the best in town the street. what I for in room is simple: a lock on door, a clean bathroom free wifi. I’m feeling high maintenance, like hot too. Pakbeng not one those days, My needs simpler in town, completely default. Like said, we this tout his guesthouse, he took to see rooms, and he flipped the lights, was a lot of. I actually a bit leaving him there, swearing and down the power be back and that could half on the but I to tell it’s really to be to pay a room electricity.

By the of our down the of guesthouses, that clean and hot nonsense was the window. I wanted a room some power. little things, We finally a place could at guarantee lights place to our phones 10pm. With offer like how can refuse? But At least got to some use of my And when town goes black by it’s pretty to get great nights

After a in Pakbeng, another 10 back on boat to Xai. Coincidentally, boat gets juuuuuuuust after Thai border that worked fine for as I want to till the to save day on Thai visa. can’t be than a thousand people town, but its 24 electricity and it seemed cosmopolitan!

So moral the story boat rides Laos drastically bus rides!
