Travelling from Huay Xai on the Thailand/Laos border and high up in the Golden Triangle, the Luang Say Cruise is a magical two-day journey that will unwind even the most highly strung Western traveller.

Travelling down the mighty Mekong River you’ll pass some stunning, rural Lao backdrops, drifting by hamlets and villages as well as a large variety of wildlife. Breaking the journey with a night in Pakbeng, staying at the delightful Luang Say Lodge, you can be sure of a relaxing journey.

You will arrive in Luang Prabang in the late afternoon of day two having taken the time to stop at the famous Pak Ou Caves at the confluence of the Mekong and Nan Ou Rivers.

There are now three Luang Say boats that ply their trade on this section of the Mekong - each is as impressive as the next.

We Say

"The perfect way to settle yourself in to the Lao pace of life!"
