Chiang Mai down the Mekong to Laos

We are looking for a holiday that will combine our two favourite countries and are wondering how we can do it and if any one else has done it? Not sure where we will end up but we totally love Chiang Mai and would like a boat down to Laos. We have been to both countries but would like any one elses input. Many thanks,

Chiangmai doesn't border the Mekong, so you'd have to travel overland to reach the river, probably somewhere like Chiang Saen where some cruise boats head south to LP and Vientiane.

Only as far as LP these days... no passenger boats head to VTE
