Boat trip to Pak Hat

A great river trip

What we say: 4 stars

There is little to distinguish it from any other small village in Bokeo -- it has a small wat, a customs office, a few shops and lots of thatch huts. It sits at the confluence of the Nam Tha and Nam Hat rivers and the reason for coming here is the trip enroute and onwards to Pha Udon.

An early morning boat trip from Pak Tha to Pak Hat is particularly atmospheric, particularly if you head off early enough to catch the remnants of morning mist. The river is quite small, with a few sets of small rapids while the mountains and jungle that surround the river is very atmospheric.

The trip takes around one to two hours by boat from Pak Tha. Be sure to negotiate return fare before departing Pak Tha! Expect to pay about 300,000 kip for the boat.
