This programme is not a tour or tour package, it is a transport package, staff are provided to ensure you get to the correct accommodation boats and buses etc but no tour guide is provided. You are required to arrange your own visa (this is available to most nationalities on arrival at the Huay Xai border post and there is no need to make advance arrangements). No visa fees are included or visa help is provided. An Independent visa service may be offered by your accommodation in Chiang Kong - This service is not provided by Travel Hub or the package operator and are therefore not responsible for the quality of any services offered. This is a budget 'no frills' package and the accommodation provided is basic, but definitely a very rewarding trip to make. The boat pier in Luang Prabang is situated about 7km south of the town. You will need to take a tuk tuk or local taxi to get you into town at your own expense (we suggest getting together with some of your fellow travellers from the boat to make this trip more economical). If you do take package "A" then you will have to find your own accommodation in Pakbeng. Outside of high season this is an easy task as the main street leading from the boat pier is lined with many guest houses. On day 2 you may want to bring some lunch with you rather than buying on the boat. The choice on the boat is limited to some intant noodles and cold snacks.
