Full Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Huay Xai to Pakbeng

Your Laos adventure begins when you are met on the Lao side of the Chiang Khong-Huay Xai Mekong River border crossing, where you will pass through immigration. Then board your private boat for a full day journey along the Mekong River towards Pakbeng. On the way you stop at a local minority village to get a better idea of the lifestyle of the many people who live along the banks of this mighty river. You will glide past precious verdant forest and sleepy riverside villages and arrive in Pakbeng, a rustic village perched on a high bank of the Mekong, in the late afternoon. Check into your simple lodge and watch the sun dip below the mountainous horizon. Lunch and dinner included.

Day 2: Pakbeng to Luang Prabang

After breakfast re-board your private boat for a further six to eight hour trip down the wild Mekong River. Prior to your arrival in Luang Prabang, you stop at the Pak Ou Caves with their thousands of Buddha images. Here, in a tradition that has lasted for centuries, local people add each year to a repository of Buddha statues. Then enjoy the last stretch of this Mekong journey before arriving in the Unesco Heritage-listed town of Luang Prabang and check in to your hotel. This short tour is a great way of experiencing life in this mysterious and beautiful country.
