Day 1 – Pakse Cruise Tour To Mekong Islands: Cruising Nearly 5000km Long Mekong River (D)
We pick you up at Pakse airport or hotel in town. At boarding this afternoon (Check in is after 2pm), your ever-friendly Laotian crew welcomes you with a cocktail. You will start your cruise experience with the departure southwards.
When the sun has set and your cruise vessel is moored safely at the river shore you will get to know more about Laos and its people as well as the nearly 5,000 km long Mekong river during exciting presentations and lectures held by your cruise director. During the next days, indulge in Southeast Asian delicacies for dinner on board or an atmospheric barbecue on the riverbank.
Day 2 – Pakse Cruise Tour To Mekong Islands: Wat Phou Sightseeing Tours – 4000 Islands (B/L/D)
After cruising leisurely further down-river you will stop to go on a shore excursion to the impressive temple complex of Wat Phou, relics of the great Khmer empire reining the region from the 8th to 13th century. This UNESCO World Heritage site is located at the foot of the 1,500 m high Kao Mountain.
With its mystical atmosphere these ruins are among the most inspiring archaeological tour destinations of Laos. Returning aboard your can lean back and enjoy the beautiful sunsets from your cabin or the sundeck while cruising deeper into the so called region of the 4,000 Islands.
Day 3 – Pakse Cruise Tour To Mekong Islands: Discovery Vacation At 4000 Islands (B/L/D)
Here in the deep south of the country the Mekong has its widest expansion of up to 16 km during the annual high water period. In thousands of years nature created a landscape that seems almost surreal with thousands of islands appearing in the river bed when the high water declines annually.
Some of these islands are bigger with a magnitude of a few square kilometers; other uninhabited ones are only a few square meters wide. Today you will go on an excursion partly by river cruise, local slowboat and bus to explore this remote nature escape and you will also see the mighty Khone waterfalls, the biggest falls in Asia. In the evening enjoy our farewell dinner aboard.
Day 4 – Pakse Cruise Tour To Mekong Islands: Return To Pakse (B)
Breakfast is served in the morning, before you disembark for your return to Pakse by bus. (No flights earlier than 13:30 from Pakse or 17:30 from Ubon Ratchatani will be reached. If you plan an earlier flight, we’ll be happy to arrange an extra hotel night in Pakse to your itinerary.) A short city tour of Pakse can be arranged for those spending an extra night or leaving late afternoon/evening.*
