Day 1: VIENTIANE – EMBARKATION (D)

In the afternoon, you will embark on the Mekong Sun, a comfortable Laotian cruise ship. This unique vessel is the first German-Laotian owned river ship with cabins on the upper Mekong. Settle into your accommodating cabin and unpack for a five-day cruise. (Check-in is at 2:00 PM). Shortly after embarkation, your vessel starts for your spectacular river cruise upstream into formerly inaccessible parts of the Mekong river. The night is spent on a beautiful sandbank, surrounded by nothing but pure nature. Enjoy the spacious decks, lounge on board and attend your welcome reception and dinner this evening. A selection of Asian and European food will be provided throughout the cruise. Overnight aboard the Mekong Sun.

Day 2: WILD NATURE ALONG THE MIGHTY MEKONG (B, L, D)

Further north you will discover some of the most remarkable, most impressive landscapes of this still-untamed river. The landscape becomes more and more spectacular: hills covered with tropical vegetation, awe-inspiring rock formations along the river banks, and a fascinating array of fast currents and slower river parts. The power of the mighty Mekong will give your cruise the feeling of a real expedition. Enjoy the beautiful views and watch nature’s wonders along the riverbanks before you head north again and stop at a remote sandbank for the night. Overnight aboard the Mekong Sun.

Day 3: PAK LAY (B, L, D)

Upstream you will stop at the small riverside community of Pak Lai, known for once possessing many colonial buildings. The purely natural landscape is only broken by the seldom sights of small villages and local herds of cattle. Enjoy the comfort and service aboard: exclusive, yet casual, you’ll share the boat with no more than 26 fellow guests. Overnight aboard the Mekong Sun.

Day 4: THA DEUA (B, L, D)

During and after breakfast on board, enjoy the beautiful view and possibly watch local fishermen along the shore. Today you will see an old Mekong ferry – but also a new bridge – connecting Luang Prabang Province with the Sayaboury province. Overnight aboard the Mekong Sun.

Day 5: KUANG SI - LUANG PRABANG (B)

A shore excursion will take you to the Kuang Si-waterfalls, some of the most attractive waterfalls in Laos. This afternoon you will reach Luang Prabang, the former royal capital of Laos, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Luang Prabang you will say goodbye to your Lao crew. Check out and disembarkation. This is the end of the trip.
