Luang Prabang to Hauy Xai


There is a lot of information but not a spasific one for me.

We booked the Gibbons that starts from Huay Xai.

We would like to know what is the fastest and safest way to get there from Luang Prabang.

So I know we have the slow boat (is there any company for that with time tables?)

There is a bus (how long should it take?)

We enter Laos from Vientiane on the 3rd of April and we have to be in Hauy Xai on the 8th.

If by any chance you can help us with a cool plan to see as much as we can of Laos and get on time to Huay Xai, it would be super!!!

Thank you so much,

Natali :)

LP to Houayxai is 2 days by slowboat or one long full day by bus. You will need to leave early morning and travel via Oudomxai.

Flights to Houayxai and nearby Luang Namtha only depart from Vientiane
