Getting there and away
There are no longer regular boat services from Muang Ngoi to Luang Prabang due to dam construction, but it is possible (for now) to get a boat as far as Nong Kiaow. Otherwise it is reached by a daily bus service on a relatively new road from Luang Prabang.

BOAT TO MUANG KHUA
There is now (March 2014) a board in the little hut where you can buy the boat tickets (near Lattanavongsa restaurant) where you can write down your name for the day you wish to travel to Muang Khua. On the day itself, come to the hut at 8:00AM and as soon as there are 10 people, you can buy your ticket (100,000 kips; 6 hours upstream).
