Take the Slow Boat to Thailand

Take the Slow Boat to Thailand

Ride along the Mekong River from Luang Prabang Laos, to Chang Rai – See the Mekong River and meet the local people that live along its shores. Share the slow boat to Thailand with locals going home from the market and watch life unfold along the Rivers Banks for this two day ride. Bring your own food and drink with you though and a book or some entertainment because it is a bare bones way of traveling. You can take a high speed boat, but what would be the fun in that?
