Rain hampers tourism

Lots of rain  in China and Laos has caused the Mekong River to rise to record levels. Towns along this mighty river, the 11th longest in the world with a length of 4,300 km are preparing for floods, and some are already experiencing difficulties due to the high water level.

Parts of Luang Prabang, the scenic town in Northern Laos, an UNESCO Heritage Site are flooded (see picture). Parts in the North of town are flooded, as well as the road along the Nam Khan river. While the main temples in town can be visited, the Kuang Sy Waterfall and the Buddha Caves at Pac Ou (Tham Ting) are currently closed.

The Luang Say Cruise has stopped its services until further notice and its lodge in Pac Beng is closed as well.
