boat from Luang Prabang to Thai border

Posted by stevebeag on 20/10/2007 at 22:48

Hi
I'm trying to find information about the boat trip from LP to the border. I am interested in obtaining info for either a 1 or 2 day trip. What days of the week do they leave and any idea of costs etc

Regards

take food - some of the boats don't have any, also (and I'm sure it's only me that's this silly) don't leave anything of value in you backpack in the cargo hold even if you have locked it.
