2 Days / 1 Night - Mekong Cruise
Luangsay River Cruise
Lao's People Democratic Republic

Cruising the Mekong of Northern Laos. Once known as the Land of a Million Elephants, Laos evolved on the banks of the magical Mekong which flows through or borders the country's entire western flank. Follow the Mekong River in Northern Laos, as it winds its way between Houei Say and Luang Prabang. There rests the noble remains of the old royal city of Luang Prabang, which dates back to the fourteenth century. A certain aura of timelessness and romance pervades the Mekong and the trip down its banks is one of enchantment and mystery.

Enjoy the comforts of our specially designed Pak Ou boat (30 seats), and relax at the Luangsay Lodge in Pakbeng for one night. Spectacular scenery at Luang Say Lodge, amidst mist shrouded mountains and the Mekong river

Welcome to the LuangSay Cruise aboard the Pak Ou, a unique and exciting way of discovering the delights of Northern Laos in style, safety and comfort.Featuring a brand new river cruise boat and a Laotian style lodge on the banks of the Mekong, the LuangSay Cruise offers the intrepid traveler two idyllic days and one night on the Mother of Waters.

It's a chance to visit a region that has hitherto been virtually inaccessible. The route is on a stretch of the Mekong between HoueiSay and the world heritage site of Luang Prabang, the former royal capital of Laos and one of the best preserved ancient cities in Asia.
