Life Along the Mekong River

Expedition Highlights

  • Enjoy a six-night cruise along the lesser-traveled Central Mekong to view daily rural life, and visit colorful markets with the opportunity to meet the lovely minority tribes-people.
  • Discover the charming town of Luang Prabang; once home to the royal family, its palace, pagodas, and lovely temples make this World Heritage Site Laos' top attraction.
  • View pre-historic rock art in Phu Phra Bat and Pha Taem National Park, which offer glimpses into life along the Mekong over 3,000 years ago.
  • Wander among the ruins of Wat Phou; built in the same style as Angkor Wat, this World Heritage Site is also the largest archaeological complex in Laos.
  • Visit the 4,000 Islands region to view Khone Phapheng, the largest waterfall by volume in Asia.
