Cruises in Luang Prabang

Another way to discover the city's wonders is cruising along the Mekong River – the main aquatic thoroughfare navigable all year round. During your cruise, you'll be able to stop at local villages and see how local people live, visit the two caves (Pak Ou Caves), crammed with countless Buddha statues, all the while comfortably enjoying the lavish buffet on board. The most famous route is a 2-day trip from Huay Xai (on the Thailand border) to Luang Prabang. Book your tour on the majestic Mekong River and get a new perspective of Luang Prabang that will make your journey unforgettable. Here are some cruise companies to book your tour with: - Mekong Cruises 50/4 Sakkarine Road, Ban Vat Sene, Luang Prabang - Mekong River Cruises 16/2 Sakkarine Rd., Luang Prabang

Do & See

There are a plethora of things to do in Luang Prabang, even if ambling around the city's beautifully preserved Old Town where French colonial buildings blend with secular wooden structures. Some of the highlights include climbing the 355 steps that lead to Phou Si Mountain, crossing the meandering rivers, and splashing in the mesmerising turquoise waters of Kuang Si Waterfalls, its pièce de résistance.
