I made the trip from Pai in Northern Thailand to Luang Prabang via Van, and the Slow Boat up-river. Although the experience was beautiful in it's scenery going up river, some of the other legs of the journey can be a bit annoying, uncomfortable to some older travellers wanting to take the "Scenic route". I definitely think the "The road less travelled" in this case should be the 35 year olds and under. For as long as this route has been made available, it seems a pity that the operators of the different legs have not made it easier, more comfortable, and more accommodating to more seasoned travellers by re-investing some of their capital into an enterprise that could be made easier without effecting the overall cost of the journey.
