    Is there a boat from Chiang Mai to Luang Prabang? If yes, how long does it take and can I book it from US?

    Thank you for any advice.

    No. See this story for explaining the various options for getting from ChiangMai to LuangPrabang. Unless you're looking at one of the high-priced boats, there's no need to book it in advance.
