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.

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.

    The river cruise from Luang Prabang was a really nice experience! The people at the Mekong smile cruise office in Huay Xai helped me getting to the border and to Chiang Mai for a really cheap price. Its a nice way of travelling to Thailand from Laos.
