Up early and down to the landing - tickets purchased 220,000 kip ($25.20) each. Time for some breakfast and purchase some sandwiches for the boat (was not necessary as food was available on the boat - but at a premium). With the boat due to leave at 10am but finally getting away at 11.30am. Never trust a timetable here - things just happen when they happen.
A very slow day just sitting watching the river go past, arriving in Pak Beng just on dusk, 5:30pm.
