Chiang Khong (เชียงของ) was historically an important market town for local hill tribes and for trade with northern Laos. In 2013, a bridge over Mae Nam Khong was completed and today the riverside town is a sleepy travellers’ gateway. From Huay Xai, on the opposite side of the Mekong, it’s a two-day slowboat or a 13-hour bus trip to Luang Prabang. And for those who have set their sights even further, Huay Xai is only an eight-hour bus ride from Boten, a border crossing to and from China.
