This route unveils the hidden gems of Laos, immersing you in verdant landscapes, rich cultural encounters, and a glimpse into the region's fascinating history.
Your voyage begins in Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage site nestled amidst emerald hills. This charming town stuns with its saffron-robed monks, French colonial architecture, and ornate Buddhist temples like Wat Xieng Thong. Witness the daily alms procession, a mesmerizing display of devotion, and explore the bustling night market overflowing with local handicrafts and delicacies.
As you set sail, the Mekong River unfolds its mesmerizing beauty. Lush rainforests carpet the hillsides, dotted with traditional villages clinging to the banks. Observe fishermen casting their nets and children waving from the shore. Keep an eye out for exotic birds flitting through the trees and playful langurs swinging from the branches.
The journey culminates in the Golden Triangle, the confluence of the Mekong, Ruak, and Nam Tha rivers, where Laos, Thailand, and Myanmar meet. This region, once notorious for opium production, now offers a glimpse into its fascinating past through hill tribe villages and historical sites. Visit the Hall of Opium museum to learn about the region's turbulent history and explore the vibrant markets overflowing with local treasures.
Throughout your cruise, cultural immersion is woven into the fabric of your experience.
