An amazing Mekong River Cruises to Luang Prabang in the north of Laos.
We are a tour company on the Mekong River and we offer a beautiful cruise up and downstream from Huay Xai – Pakbeng – Luang Prabang and vice-versa. It’s more of a luxury than a public slow boat, because the seats are more comfortable and you will receive a delicious lunch during the journey. This boat trip takes two days an overnight in Pakbeng. Pakbeng is a small city with several guesthouses. Please book by yourself.
When taking the cruise from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai, we will also be happy to help get you to Chiang Khong, Chiang Rai or Chiang Mai (Thailand) by minivan, bus or Took Took. We also provide full-service to the boarder of Laos.
Join us this season for an amazing cruise on the slow boat along the Mekong River. You can start your cruise from Chiang Kong (Thailand) or Luang Prabang (Laos). Enjoy breathtaking views in our comfortable slow boat, which accommodates up to 40 passengers. Guaranteed scheduled cruises.
We will pick you up by minivan to take you to our boat. Then, the cruise starts! A journey down the mighty Mekong River, the 10th longest river in the world and 7th longest in Asia! Along the way we will stop to visit the local people to learn about their culture, view the beautiful Pak Ou caves with the beautiful Buddha images, and enjoy the breathtaking views and surroundings.
