Private slow boat gives you relative flexibility and comfort, choice to visit the places you want along the river, and of course the privacy you want provided the boat gets to the sleeping destination before or at sunset time for safety reason.

2:45 p.m. afternoon heat could not stop this lady from panning for gold from her paddle boat on the Mekong river.

The lives on the Mekong river we have seen so far are all related to the river. This would always be true for these people living on the river. Where we live, many of us long to have many things including a nice bed in a large wooden comfy house surrounded by a green garden and a pool, good skin and beauty, impression, love, respect, trust and the list goes on.

Fishermen and gold panners on the Mekong river also need a rest or a nap between the works. This small improvised bed in the shade of rocks as well served the need for comfort of the lives on the Mekong river.
