Full description
Enjoy the splendor of the Mekong in the most idyllic way possible with a local family's boat, coupled with traditional Hmong music created from the Hmong Kaen, and feel like you have stepped into a bygone era with only nature for company.

The hour-long cruise will bring you down the mighty river of Mekong, one of the most productive rivers in the world, feeding hundreds of millions of people. See locals wrapping up their day at work, hanging up nets, cooking dinner by the banks, and children having fun outside their villages.

See the sunset from your boat with a unique viewpoint, and savor a carefully selected picnic basket of local food. Enjoy sticky rice, the staple of all Laotians, the classic Luang Prabang sausage, famous Chow Bong (Buffalo skin chili sauce) and eggplant sauce with a bottle of Lao beer.
