Luang Say Cruise and Luang Say Lodge

Our cruise travels on the Mekong river from Houei Say to Luang Prabang in Laos, and, in the other direction, from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai.

We offer a very comfortable Mekong cruise, a cultural journey and an opportunity to understand a bit more about life on this legendary river.

Your cruise on the Mekong to the Luang Say Lodge, near the town of Pakbeng, will take about 7 - 8 hours. The one night accommodation is in one of the nicest Lodges in the region. From your luxury teak and rosewood bungalow, you can view the dramatic river scenery of the Mekong, enjoying the fiery and romantic sunset and the mysterious and poetic sunrise. It is a pleasure to have dinner in the middle of the mountains of northern Laos.

The second leg of your journey on our boat, from Pakbeng to the ancient royal capital Luang Prabang, a World Heritage site, or to the Thai border. En route, the river winds its turbulent way through jungle, mountains, teak plantations and farmland.

Your travel through this remote and exotic land is on board one of the Pak Ou boats, a purpose built 34 metre Mekong river barge. All our boats to and from Luang Prabang, are appointed with everything for your comfort, safety and enjoyment, with ample open air seating, a bar, toilet facilities and a galley. The perfect way to relax and enjoy a unique and romantic voyage.

The Mekong river is the artery of life in Laos: a trading route, a source of food and water, and a social centre for the settlements along its route. Known locally as The Mother of Waters, the river has been venerated and worshipped for thousands of years.

You will see villages along the river from several ethnic groups, ancient Buddhist temples, and all the activities that contribute to the economy of the people in Laos, such as farming, fishing, weaving, gold mining, whiskey distilling, and teak logging.

Enjoy your journey through this rich, colourful and historic region, largely untouched by the modern world.
