Cruise the Mekong from Thailand to Luang Prabang

December 27, 2010 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , ,

Khiri Naga now offers a cost-effective way to cruise the Mekong from northern Thailand to Luang Prabang. The trip is in a Mekong longboat which has been upgraded with a restaurant, kitchen and bathrooms suitable for western visitors.

The two-day trip starts with an overnight at Pak Beng village in Laos. After a market trip in the morning, get onboard for a full-day leisurely cruise down river to Luang Prabang. Along the way passengers can enjoy a restaurant and all-day bar. The longboat stops at a remote riverside village where guests can witness local conditions, not much changed over the last few decades. All along the way passengers view the magnificent Laotian mountain scenery, one of Southeast Asia’s iconic travel experiences.

The trips start 9am on Saturdays at Huai Xai immigration in Laos (across the river from Chiang Rai province in Thailand) and finish 5.30pm on Luang Prabang on Sundays. Departures are every Saturday between 10 January and 17 April 2011 and 24 October to 27 December 2011.
