I'm planning a trip from Chiang Mai in Thailand to Yunnan in China.
I understand there is a passenger boat from Chiang Sean in Thailand to Jinghong in China.
Has anyone any details on this trip:
* ie times, prices, etc.,
* the border crossing requirements (eg. visa on arrival to China for an Australian, or is it necessary to pre-order), and
* what 'problems' might need to be addressed along the way.
Cheers (in advance)
Easy The boat only goes when the Mekong is high.
The boat is a Speedboat. It is based in China. They were threatening to cancel the boat due to low water levels, so check if still operating.
Lunch is provided.
I forgot cost.
It takes all day.
No problems. It is a no brainer.
