Welcome to Bokeo-Houay Xai, Laos
Bokeo’s hillside provincial center sits on the banks of the Mekong across from Chiang Kong, Thailand, and bookends The Tea Caravan Trail in the south. Houei Xai also serves as a hub feeding travelers from Thailand into northwestern Laos due to its ferry port with an immigration checkpoint. An under-construction bridge will soon simplify access.
The town is also a launch pad for the area’s activities and attractions including the historic Fort Carnot, the Golden Triangle’s ancient city of Souvannakhomkham, the “Gibbon Experience”, the Bokeo Arts and Crafts Center, and treks in the Nam Kan NPA.
