The Lao Mekong Cruise 3 night (4 days) Tour & Cruise
(Monday – Thursday upstream and Friday – Monday downstream) commences in the southern city of Pakse, and visits the 4000 “islands“ – actually small inlets within the river – and the Khone Waterfalls, regarded as being the most dramatic in southeast Asia.
All cruises include daily sightseeing on a group basis, three locally influenced meals daily. Optional additional accommodation in Pakse and Luang Prabang, and other points in the region can be easily arranged. Details on request.
Laos has a magical atmosphere, almost totally bypassed by the demands of modern tourism. You still feel you are finding new totally new experiences on a day by day, almost hour by hour basis. This is particularly reflected in these two cruise options – they will appeal essentially to those looking for simple elegance and to desire to discover. As you would probably anticipate, the actual itineraries may be varied on a day to day basis depending on the seasonal water levels. Both suggestions will appeal to the more curious, experienced traveller and especially the southern Laos option.

For the curious traveller, the journey into Laos is a rewarding and fantastic experience. Part of what was known as Indo-China, the collective name for the former French Territories in the region. Whilst Vietnam and Cambodia were prized possessions, Laos was seen more as “buffer” value against invasion. It remains one of the less developed (and least populated) countries in south-east Asia. Laos is a hidden gem, with a less frantic pace than all of its neighbours.
Of all the countries in the region, it is the least openly commercial and interested in western-style consumerism. It has a delightful serene, totally laid back style, with Buddhism dominating every aspect of day to day life.
