Boats at a Village on the Mekong River, Laos

Boats at the banks of the Mekong River, Laos

I took this photo while travelling on the Slow Boat up the Mekong River in Laos back in 2011. As the boat slowly chugged it’s way up the river, we stopped in at many small villages on the banks of the river to offload passengers and cargo. The Mekong River is the only way to get to most of these villages.

    i guess it would be interesting to explore the country side of Laos located amidst such rich and lush greenery. Did you get an opportunity to visit one of these villages?

      Hi Vinnie. I didn’t get to see these villages as the boat doesn’t stop for long, however I did see many other small villages in Laos. It is quite an experience!
