Boat trip Luang Prabang to Muang Khua

Posted by shunter on 26/9/2008 at 22:41

Gday, im planning on travelling between LP and Muang Khua by boat (with a couple of days in Muang Ngoi) and was wondering if it was better to do the trip starting from LP and ending in Muang Khua or vise versa? Or does it even make a difference? Is there a difference in traveling time or anything like that?

It's a marginally faster trip going downriver, but that's about the only diff as far as I know.

What is the time frame for going from Luang Prabang to Muang Khua? Is it possible to make the trip in a single day, or must we stop in Muang Ngoi? What is the cost of the trip?

Likewise, is it faster/more convenient/cheaper to simply take a bus up to Muang Khua? I'd prefer the relaxation of a boat ride, but we have a time frame to try to maintain.

Thanks for any advice, highly appreciated.
