Just over 2 years ago I did a trip from H-X downstream to LP and then onward through Pongsavanh and on to Dien Bien .... I understood the "upper" part of the Mekong was scenic, but did not go due to time constraints.
Where do the boats start from on their way downstream to (say) Huai Xai? How accessible are these sites by bus? Any idea of prices (in Kip).
I have a week to do such a trip (starting and ending in Huai Xai) - in early-mid September (during Eid holidays). Thanks for any info.
