Can anyone give any help/details about the bus from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang?

Is this bus I've heard about even real or is getting from A to B only possible by boat?

I have never heard of anyone doing it by bus, but not sure if it's possible or not. I would recommend the boat trip though - it's a nice way of doing it.

as far as i know, theres no bus from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang yet. the boat trip is nice and scenic though, with an overnight stop at Pak Beng before carrying onto Luang Prabang, reaching in the evening - theres usually a mad scramble for good cheap rooms then, at around 7, so be quick!

You could go, time permitting, from huay xai >> louang namtha >> luang prabang, the 1st part is a bit long and a bit hard, but really interesting and amazing scenery, the second part is pretty incredible i thought, good luck wherever you decide to go :-}
