Going alone on a boat down the Mekong for 2/3 days

Posted by yhaklai on 20/12/2009 at 20:22

Hello guys!!

Well - my friends bought a boat last year in laos and went down the mekong all the way from the Huai Xai to Pak lai.

Me and my friend are now in Huay Xai and we are intersted in doing a little shorter trip - just from Xuay Xai to Luang Prabang. I got all the plans from their adventure.

Anybody up for this?
Experience in sailing - advantage..
just kidding!! :)

my mail is - yhaklai@gmail.com

If you're intersted or knows about anybody who is coming to the area and might be intersted or have any tips about the trip- please let me know.

Thank you! :)

A friend of mine went from Nong Khai to Mukdahan on a boat he made himself. He had a great time. Was tricky in some shallows, but not overly so.

Hey!!

Thanks for ur reply.
Sounds amazing.
Do you have any more information or some way i can talk to your friend?

Right now I am in Huay Xai. I think I am heading to Luang Prabang as there are not so many options of buying a boat here.

Thank you my friend!

Yhak
I sent him your email three days ago, but he's been very busy. Don't know if he was able to get back with you or not.
