Huay Xai - old Yunnanese caravan disembarkation point

Huay Xai - old Yunnanese caravan disembarkation point

The first thing required to slip into the laid-back Lao life upon arriving in Huay Xai is enjoy a spicy meal by the river and wash it down with a cold glass of Beer Lao. After dinner, a short walk to the hill top temple of Wat Jom Khao Manilat presents a typical tropical sun setting over the Mekong River and Thailand beyond, and should see you relaxed and happy for the rest of your tour. Huay Xai has long been a stopping point for traders, and the tiny river town is now a major point of entry from Thailand into Laos.
