About Luang Namtha Province

Luang Namtha province shares a 140-kilometre land border with the People’s Republic of China, and its northwest frontier with Myanmar follows a 130-kilometer stretch of the Mekong River and the Laos province of Oudomxay. The province’s capital is Luang Namtha. 

The 422-kilometre-long China-Laos Railway connects border town Boten with Chinese city Mohan and Laos’ capital Vientiane; Luang Namtha province’s major railway station is at Natuey, adjacent to the new Amata Smart and Eco City Natuey.

Last year, the Laos government has approved the construction of an expressway running between Bokeo province and Boten at Luang Namtha province, which will link China and Thailand through Laos. In addition, surveys of the next three sections of the Laos-China Expressway, which is being built between Vientiane and Boten have been completed. The expressway will run for a distance of 440 kilometres and will be built in four sections. The first section between capital Vientiane and Vangvieng district was been opened in December 2021.
