Mekong Riverside views! White sand beaches galore!

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

On Mekong River Slow boat Journey.

The slowly unfolding scenery, primitive bamboo village houses, sand bars, buffalos, big jagged rocks and watching the unhurried life on the banks of the river, the time to think, have a nap, talk to fellow travelers - is what it's all about.

The wonderful white fine sandy beaches you are floating by, but no chance to stop and enjoy them. These beaches are inaccessible, unless you hire a private boat.

Most parts of the river the water just goes too fast, it is way too dangerous to swim, even if you are an excellent swimmer!! Lots of kids drown every year!

Excelentní snímek! Lákavá destinace! Ale prý to tam už turismus drtí!
Vše nejlepší přeje a za přízeň děkuje Jarda z Potštejn!

ne neni to tak zle s tim turismem.

Byl jsem practicky jen v Luangprabang a Vientiane, ale byli jsme napriklad jen jedini hoste v nasem "guest house" a casto jedini cizinci v restauraci.
