The Port of Mukdahan Thailand on the Mighty Mekong

Okay maybe it is not way downstream in Vietnam where the big ships come in, but the Mekong or Mekhong River has been a major highway between Laos and Thailand for centuries and look still no potholes. Everyday tonnes of good move back and forth, not over the big new bridges, but the way they always have, by boat. And the goods get to the boats the on the backs of men. the way they always have. The EWEC might be a pipedream, but trade along the Mekhong is a reality
