Slow Boat Down the Mekong River
Sit back and relax on a "slow boat" as the world slowly passes you by on the mighty Mekong River. The Mekong is the 10th largest river in the world and winds its way down from the Tibetan Plateau through a number of Asian countries, including Laos. One of the world's classic journeys starts at the Thai border, where you can get on the slow boat to Luang Prabang. The boats are extremely long and narrow, though comfortable, and many are equipped with kitchens, so you won't go hungry. The trip takes about 20 hours over the course of two full days and allows you a firsthand view of life along the picturesque Mekong. You will see villages along the banks that haven't changed much in hundreds of years. It's almost like an open air museum of anthropology and will make you glad that you passed on the "fast boat".
