Mekong Delta Cruise in Laos

Luong Say Cruises

Destination: Luong say 1day, Luong say 2days, Luong say 3days, Luong say 4days and Luong say 5days

The Luangsay Mekong cruises proposes here a one way journey over 3 days and 2 nights. Accommodations will be at the LuangSay Lodge in Pakbeng, and in the Kamu Lodge between Pak Beng and Luang Prabang.
You can choose to travel down river from Chiang Khong / Houei Say (the Thai/Lao border) to Luang Prabang OR upriver from Luang Prabang to the Thai/Lao border at Huay Xai.

 

Luang Say Boat

Luang Say Mekong Cruises has three boats travelling from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang, or, from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai.
Both cruises stop over for one night in our Luang Say Lodge in Pakbeng.
Our boats are 34 metres long with a 420 HP engine and a steel hull for strength and safety. The boats have a capacity for 40 people in comfortable seats and benches. Each seat has an open air vista. We have coffee tables with magazines and booklets to read during your cruise.
The central section of our Luangsay boats have bench seats, a perfect spot for a game of cards, to share your Mekong stories, or to have lunch,
Each cruise departure has both a French and English speaking guide who are able to answer your questions and point out any sights of interest along the way. We also have a fearless captain, a qualified mechanic and a boat boy.
On board we have two western style toilets, one at the back of the boat and one next to the bar in the central section.
Life jackets are available in a variety of sizes including childrens sizes. There are also rails around the sides of the boat for safety. Luggage can be stored overnight in a large compartment underneath the deck where it can be locked away.
Cuisine on boat:
Around noon, we are happy to serve you a buffet lunch, carefully prepared to introduce you to Laotian cuisine and its typical flavors. Water, tea and coffee are complimentary during the cruise on the Mekong but we also have a bar, complete with rattan bar stools, serving wine, beer, spirits and soft drinks which can be purchased.
We can cater for special meals requests, if you advise us in advance
Perch here, appreciate the hospitable atmosphere of our boat, and a refreshing icy Beer Lao or chilled Chardonnay, amidst remote mountains. Its just hell in the tropics! ;-)
