Visibility in North Thailand is very limited during scorching April. Nearby hills surrounding Thaton lose their contours and further mountains disappear in summer haze.

Sunset over Mekong river in Luang Prabang.

I visit Luang Prabang many times. I come to this lovely town by plane, bus and boat. The river journey by boat is by far the greatest. Take your time and travel 2 days from Thai border to Luang Prabang by a local barge called in Laos the slow boat.


Sumbanese river near Indian Ocean.

I was one of the many witnesses of a funeral ceremony in one village in West Sumba. At noon I went to the river looking for a cool breeze. The boys from nearby villages had already bathed in the water.


To get Champasak you have to cross Mekong river.

I leave the highway 13 on my way to Champasak. After 5 km I reach the east bank of Mekong river. The local ferries have different shape and size. The smallest ones look like a wooden fishing pier. Such small ferry can carry 4 people and 2 scooters.

River in Nan Province on a March afternoon.

Nan province in North Thailand is a peaceful countyside where you can go fishing or hiking in the mountains.

I enjoy splendid view of Mekong sitting in a rustic bar by the river. Famous ruined Khmer temple complex Vat Phou is only 6 miles away from my vantage point.
