This pioneering cruise on board the RV Laos Pandaw journeys through the breath-taking scenery of Laos with it mountains, rapids, gorges and jungle countryside.

Our captivating tour journeys through Laos encompassing some of the most fascinating parts of the country, exploring not only its historic and cultural heritage but also its natural wonders. Beginning in the old French capital of Vientiane sail through the un-spoiled riverside villages of Laos stopping for two nights at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang with its dazzling wood carved monasteries and ancient Buddhist traditions.

Continue cruising upstream before disembarking in the remote Golden Triangle of northern Thailand with its ancient temples and its remarkable tribal culture and artistry before spending your final days of the tour exploring Chiang Rai and the surrounding areas including its numerous temples.

We are also offering a fascinating post-tour extension spent exploring Asia’s most magnificent archaeological remains - the Khmer Temples of Angkor, Cambodia - a UNESCO World Heritage Site built between the 7th and 11th centuries including some 70 ruins covering an area of 200 square miles.
