Transport from Chiang Kong/Huay Xai to Luang Prabang will be by a traditional cargo boat which has been adapted to carry passengers. The seating often consists of wooden benches which can become a bit uncomfortable after a seven hour stretch on the Mekong River so please be prepared for this. We suggest bringing a cushion.
