The journey along the Upper Mekong was fantastic. The attractions I saw were excellent. I really enjoyed the peacefulness of the river and the wonderful scenery.It really suited me, a person who doesn't like the fast pace and fast life of the cities. The people were wonderful and their way of life so different from my own. It was an... More

We agonised over our trip down the Mekong from the Thai border to Luang Prabang for budget reasons but eventually went with the more expensive option of the 2-day slow boat called the Nagi of Mekong! We'd heard the public boats were a nightmare and the fast boats dangerous so this sounded more to our liking and we're so pleased... More

We did a one day upstream cruise from laung prabang. We started in the morning and were done by 2-3 pm. We had a private boat with a guide. It was very relaxing with views of the countryside. On the way stopped at PakOu Caves. These are 2 linked caves where they have thousands Buddha statues left by pilgrims. Stopped... More

So there arent many options to get from the border and i cannot comment on the speedboat (some say its dangerous) or the bus (i dislike most buses). The slow boat, the first day we got some decent seats, actually had 3 betwene 2 of us so we were fairly comfortable. At first the scenary and experiance of being on... More

We have recently had the pleasure of doing this 'slow boat' trip from the Thai Border down the Mekong River to Luang Prabang. I cannot say enough how lovely the trip was, how great the staff were and how well organised it was from start to finish. Firstly Adisak answered all my queries immediately via email beforehand. They took no... More

Wife and I just spent 2 days on the luang Say cruise from the Thai border to Luang Prabang . Having just left a luxury Thai resort we were a bit apprehensive about this part of our itinerary ,we needn't have been . At first glance the luang say certainly wasn't a Silver sea liner . But after an hour... More

We had a really excellent two day trip down the Mekong with Luang Say Cruises from Chiang Rai to Luang Prabang. The quality of the experience does come at a cost but I felt that the overall value for money was very high. We flew into Chiang Rai, Thailand for a few nights and then had arranged with Luang Say...

Sailing down Mekong onboard Nagy was a highlight of my Laos trip. Had feared the public boat, which sounded more than survival than god fun. Payed a little more but I have an experience I will look back at with great pleasure. The guide onboard, Ka, was very serviceminded and made everything work perfect.
