What's the best way to get to Luang Namtha from Hanoi?

Jump to last reply

Hi -- I can't find my earlier post so at risk of being a pest I'm reposting an earlier question.

I need to travel from Hanoi to the Luang Namtha region and wonder what's the best way to go -- my current thought is to fly from Hanoi to Luang Prabang, then take a bus north, but I wonder if there are river options from Luang Prabang.

Does anyone with experience travelling in northern Laos have any thoughts on this? Any idea on how long I should set aside for the trip? Any suggestions appreciated,
