The Essential
In Houay Xay, the southern entry point to the country, the 4th Friendship Bridge spans the Mekong, linking Laos with Thailand. The capital of the province of Bokeo extends along the left bank of the river, opposite the Thai town of Chiang Khong. The town is the departure point for two-day river cruises towards Luang Prabang, passing through a wild and mountainous landscape.
