More About This Experience

Enjoy the splendour of the Mekong in the most idyllic way possible with a local family's boat, coupled with traditional Hmong music created from the Hmong Kaen, you will feel like you are transported into a bygone era with only nature for company. The hour long cruise will bring you down the mighty river of Mekong, one of the most productive rivers in the world feeding hundreds of millions of people. See locals wrapping up their day at work, hanging up nets, cooking dinner by the banks or just children having fun outside their villages. The sunset will definitely be one of the highlights of your trip as you see it from your boat with a unique viewpoint, coupled with soulful Hmong music and a great selection from our carefully selected picnic basket of local food. Enjoy sticky rice, the staple of all Laotians, the classic Luang Prabang sausage, famous sauces Chow Bong (Buffalo skin chilli sauce) and Eggplant sauce coupled with a bottle of Lao beer. This is one complete boat cruise combining luxury and authenticity that you won't find anywhere else. Note: Bring your own drinking water
