We booked a Mekong River trip to Laos,just to add another country to our list! Unfortunately,our passport didn't get stamped, but we have photographs witnessing our entry to the country! There are many souvenir stalls as you enter Laos,offering Snake whiskey,cigarettes,t-shirts etc. Many of the traders will indulge in a bit of bartering with you,in a good natured way,always remember...

This cruise is in southern Laos, departing from Pakse. An incredible 3 day/2 night experience. Small part of the trip by road but otherwise on this old converted timber barge just ambling along the mighty Mekong River. Exceptional staff and service. Comfortable room with ensuite. Food is never ending and overwhelmingly good. We stopped off at several locations - local... More

The Great Mekong is a must experience if in SE Asia. preferably do a 2-day slow boat trip. The river is the life and soul for so many and it was a privilege to be part of that.

We had a great time taking Nagi of Mekong. The two lunches were great, the weather was nice and the boat was quite comfortable. We also appreciated the help getting over the boarder from Chiang Khong into Laos. Adsiak provides great customer service and answered all our questions ahead of time. We shared the boat with two other tour groups,... More

From Chaing Mai to Chaing Rai there is a lunch stop (you pay for this). Then stop again for 20 mins in Chaing Rai to see the White Temple. Continue to the border town and... More
