Laos Ferry Costs & Timing - Chiang Kong (Thailand) to Huay Xai (Laos)
Hi all, We've just crossed from Chiang Kong (Thailand) to Huay Xai (Laos),
We had a good chat with the ferry operator, the cost for a 4x4 is 1000 baht, anytime of the day, Bikes should be 250 - 500 Baht depending on their size.
There is no need to be there first thing in the morning as the ferry leaves every 30 - 60 mins ,once full. If they are not full within the hour, they will make the crossing never-the-less and not charge you any extra. If they suggest otherwise they're pulling a fast one!
Once on the other side, the customs office is just up the steps, office number 5, and immigration is down the road at the passenger ferry port.
Carnet was required, however no charge.
