In October 08 we will be in Laos and would like to do a slow boattrip on the Mekong or any other river. Preferably in the South, or otherwise North. On the net we've found very posh, expensive trips or scam trips with 20+ people on one boat. There must be other ways... Help!

In the south, your only option are the boats down to 4,000 islands. In the north boats run daily for the two day trip from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang and there's also options for trips from Pak Tha to Luang Nam Tha and also from Luang Prabang upriver to Nong Kiaow.

quite often people go even further on the Ou river that somtam mentioned in the Luang Prabang / Nong Kieow recomendation, taking a couple of days to reach Hat Sa in Phongsali province.
On the Mekong there is also a regularly scheduled large slowboat that few foreigners take from Vientiane upriver to Paklai in Sayabouli Province.
