Luang Prabang By Boat.

Luang Prabang, Luang Prabang Province, Laos


boats like these provide transport up and down the Nam Ou river

Traveled from Oudomxai to the river port town of Muang Khou by motorcycle. Roads were good 75% of the way, with patches of flood devastation and occasional landslide damage. From Muang Khou we (Andrew, the cyclist from New Zealand and 5 other travelers and myself) chartered a boat to take us to Luang Prabang.

Getting the motorcycle on the boat was...something else. So far, Luang Prabang is amazing!

Motorcycle seems to have developed a 'valve chatter' problem and is going to need some attention while I am in town.
