Xieng Kok is a border town situated at the left banks of the Mekong River in north Laos. It’s a remote place and kind of a dead end when approaching it per road. Though, in the rainy season there is much boat traffic on the river, who is the traditional travel route. However, the place’s surroundings are not fully save. It is drug gang territory and much smuggling is going on to and fro the border to Burma/Myanmar.
