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.
