Laos - Mekong River

Mekong River

I traveled by boat on the Mekong River from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai. It was a two-day trip on a very basic boat, with an overnight stop in the trading port of Pakbeng. During the journey I observed beautiful scenery and village life along the “mother of rivers”. Twenty-five dams are planned by China, Laos, and Cambodia, so I’m glad that I experienced the Mekong River before the watershed and way of life changes.
