On the Nam Ou, Laos, may 11, 2011

Not many people take the boat up the Nam Ou river to Nong Khiaw. Sure the mini bus is faster and cheaper, but if you enjoy boat rides through beautiful landscapes and having boat more or less for yourself, then this is your way of travel. :) I was on a decent sized boat with two nice French people and the Laotian driver and his wife. I loved it!
