Crossing Borders in Style this Green Season

Travel in style from Thailand’s northern temples via Pak Beng to UNESCO-protected Luang Prabang in Laos.

In the low season from 1 May until 30 June and 1-30 September, profit from major discounts on stylish hotel accommodation and the comfortable overnight Mekong Cruise from Chiang Khong and Houay Xai to Luang Prabang in Laos.

Spend two nights in Chiang Mai to discover the city’s many ancient temples. (There is enough time to partake in your own activities, including wonderful handicrafts shopping.) A private car drives in to pick you up for a transfer to Chiang Khong. We take you via the famous Wat Rong Khun – or White Temple – and through beautiful mountain vistas. The next morning board your luxury vessel for a leisurely journey up the Mekong River out of Thailand into the heart of Laos.

We travel with the Luang Say, a flat-bottomed riverboat with comfortable,

covered seating areas (and a bar and restaurant on board). Lush green hills and local fishing boats glide by as you relax and take in the peaceful scenery along the way. Before sunset we arrive in Pakbeng, a quiet settlement on the banks of the Mekong. Life here is slow and traditional Laos — you will find chickens and other small cattle playing along with toddlers, with everything carefully supervised by the village elders.

Spend the night at the Luang Say Lodge offering amazing river views. The next morning after a market visit, proceed past small communities living along the river to reach Luang Prabang in the early afternoon. We visit the Pak Ou Caves, housing thousands of Buddha images left by the devout.

Luang Prabang is considered to be one of the jewels of Asia with a mixture of both French and Lao Buddhist architecture. The town is wedged between the Mekong and Nam Kanh rivers and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide takes you to visit the most ancient and important temples in this picturesque town.

A private transfer to the Luang Prabang airport for your onward departure is included on your last day.
