(Indochina Trip.2017) The Journey to Promote Famous Destinations in Indochina - P.33. Muang Ngoi Neua, Laos


(IndochinaKings.org) Muang Ngoi Neua is a small riverside village in Northern Laos with permanent electricity as of april 2013. Prior to 2013, Muang ngoi had no road access. In the last few years it has become part of the Banana Pancake Trail with rapid construction of tourist infrastructure in response to the increasing influx of visitors.


There are 1-hour public boats from Nong Khiaw (daily 11:00 and 14:00, 25.000 kip) or Muang Khua(daily 09:30, 110.000 kip).



In April 2013 Muang Ngoi got a small road. If you have your own vehicle you can reach Muang Ngoi by road but as the trip takes 2.5 hours from Nong Kiew, the boats are the obvious choice for transporting people. It is rumored that a more direct road to Muang Ngoi may complete construction in 2015 thus reducing driving time.



The mountainous town here is perfect for those that prefer walking, trekking and driving along river and mountain terrain, and enjoying the sounds of birds chirping. Out of Laos’ many destinations for peaceful reflection in nature, Muang Ngoi Neua is one of our favorites.
