As you cruise down the mighty Mekong, just before you get to Khong Jiam, you’ll see a long cliff—Pha Taem—for which the 131-square-mile Pha Taem National Park is named. The hale and hardy can climb to the top for a bird’s-eye view of Laos. Explore the park—the most eastern region of Thailand and one of the most popular attractions in the Ubon Ratchatani province—to glimpse nearly 300 prehistoric rock paintings estimated at around 3,000 years old, as well as spectacular waterfalls.

Cruising the Mekong River
May 29, 2015

Imagine, for a moment, the gift of discovery, of journeying into a completely new region of the world—one you’ve only read about and seen in photographs. A chance to understand the traditions and customs of a population wholly removed from your daily life and halfway around the planet. The lesser-visited Central Mekong River region is replete with opportunities to observe Laotian and Thai cultures, untrammeled by overtly modern influences and hearkening to a simpler time.

Golden Stupa, Laos

Our expedition to Burma and Laos via the Golden Triangle of Thailand is always a big hit among our well-traveled clients. They love the people first of all, but also the rich cultural history, as well as the amazing scenery and unique natural surprises all along the way. I have been traveling regularly to Burma since 1977, and have led every Zegrahm or Eco Expeditions exploration of that country, the first almost ten years ago. It is always an exciting journey for me.

Our visit to Burma and Laos was a great success. Pleasant memories of the trip remain fresh and vivid—the luxury and surprise of Afternoon Tea at the Strand Hotel; the joyful spirit of the people at the Shwedagon; the peacefulness, relaxation, and enthusiastic service of the Pandaw voyage; sunset and horse cart ride amidst the stupas of Pagan; and the incredible and unique Inle Lake. For many of us, Burma was especially delightful—thanks to our super guide Daniel. To others, the...

Zegrahm began offering our Burma & Laos trip about ten years ago, with the belief that we could do more to help the people of Burma by traveling to their country than by not going at all. We have always hoped that if we could get to Aung San Suu Kyi's ear, that she would reach the same conclusion. Someone has gotten to her ear and we can now be even more proud of our positive, progressive legacy in Burma.

Many of our travelers have been inspired by their experiences in Burma and...
