14 Thatched Canoe on Mekong River Shore in Ban Pak Ou, Laos

When you take a short boat cruise along the Mekong River in Laos, you will notice the absence of docks. That’s because the water level rises and falls so dramatically that docks are not practical. Instead, boats are pulled onto shore or tethered against other watercraft. You will also see the extensive use of thatched canopies for canoes and roofs on homes.
