From Ban Houayxay we drove for two days on the slowboat on the Mekong River towards Luang Prabang. After we boarded the boat with over 50 other travelers in the morning, both days accompanied us beautiful and very varied nature. After a short but incredibly clear starlit night in Pak Beng, we reached Luang Prabang after 8 hours and other super beautiful impressions of landscapes, villages and their inhabitants.
