Luang Say Cruise
Luang Say Mekong Cruises has three boats travelling from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang and vice versa.
All programs stop over for one night at Luang Say Lodge in Pakbeng.
Each boat is 34 metres long with a 420 HP engine and a steel hull for strength and safety.
The boats have a capacity for 40 people seated in comfortable chairs and benches. Each seat has an open air vista.
There are also some coffee tables with magazines and booklets to read during the cruise.
The central section of the boats have bench seats, a perfect spot for a game of cards, to share your Mekong stories, or to have lunch.
Each cruise departure has an English speaking guide who is able to answer your questions and point out the many sights of interest along the way.
The crew also consits of a captain, a qualified mechanic and a boat boy.
There are two western style toilets on board, one at the back of the boat as well as one next to the bar in the central section.
Life jackets are carried on board in a variety of sizes including sizes for children.
There are also rails around the sides of the boat for passenger safety.
Luggage can be stored and locked securely overnight in a large compartment underneath the deck.
Luang Say Lodge
On the left bank of the river, the Luang Say Lodge is backed by mountainous jungle.
The Luang Say Lodge sits peacefully above the river, blending artfully into the natural environment through careful landscaping, raised platforms and indigenous styling.
It features 20 large pavilions, each elegantly furnished in dark-toned wood and white fabrics, and offering stunning panoramic views on three sides of the Mekong.
The large pavilions of solid teak and rosewood all have beautiful views over the Mekong and the mountains beyond.
The traditional Laotian architecture provides accommodation of comfort and character, each bedroom equipped with high ceiling mosquito nets, electric fans and a large private bathroom with hot shower and western style toilet.
A central riverbank restaurant is reached by wooden walkways from the pavilions.
Here you can enjoy fine, mainly organic, food and can order a choice of drinks from the well-stocked bar.
A buffet dinner of traditional Lao food and continental breakfasts are served in this restaurant area.
On days with passengers exceeding 20 people, there is normally an ethnic minority dance performance in the restaurant area.
The performers are a mixture of Luang Say Lodge staff, local villagers and school children.
The Lodge also has a fully equipped bar serving soft drinks, beer Lao and spirits.
Laotian coffee, tea and drinking water, are included free for the duration of your stay at the Lodge.
Is this a Private Tour or a Group Tour?
All of our tours are private tailor made itineraries, customised for you - we can amend things to entirely suit you.
You will have your own private car, driver and guide on excursions on our tailor made tours.
Shore excursions on the Luang Say cruise are on a shared basis.
What are the departure dates?
Let us know your preferred dates of travel and we will find the best and most suitable flights to fit your itinerary.
The Luang Say departs almost daily in both directions.
Which Airlines do you use?
We work with all the major airlines flying to this part of the world.
Typically for this journey, Thai Airways or Vietnam Airlines would be the airlines we most often use as they have normally have the most direct flights and best fares.
However, just let us know your preferred airline if you have one. We can organise flights from any regional destination in the UK.
Which Hotels do you use?
We're careful with our choice of hotels, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have some preferred hotels, just let us know.
We specialise in boutique hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller hotels where we think these will be suitable.
We keep on top of hotel developments in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam from our office in Vietnam and regularly inspect the hotels we use.
Luckily in Chiang Mai, Luang Prabang, Siem Reap and Saigon there is a great choice of boutique hotels and very nice places to stay.
Do you cater for Solo Travellers?
Yes, we have many solo travellers, and both Thailand and Laos are both very safe, friendly and welcoming destinations for those travelling alone.
River cruises on the Mekong through Laos are a popular option for solo travellers, especially with Pandaw Cruises who offer no Single Supplements on many departures.
