A TASTE OF LAOS

Indulge in traditional Laotian cuisine while experiencing the magic of the Mekong river. Discover the beauty of the Mekong on your cruise and get a delicious taste of Laos on-board a traditional slow boat.

Embark on a culinary adventure as you explore the world of flavours found in various traditional Laotian dishes. From rich and savoury sauces, to light and refreshing bites, to tangy sweet and sour, to kicks of spice, your taste-buds can expect to be tantalized and your bellies satisfied. On top of the delicious food and wine, on-board services and friendly atmosphere, you’ll also have the stunning Mekong and its lush landscapes to accompany your meal.

Take a leisurely lunch or dinner cruise to enjoy the views of the Mekong whilst you savour delicious Lao dishes. For a more casual affair, hop on-board a sunset cocktail cruise and admire the natural beauty that Luang Prabang has to offer with bubbly and snacks in hand. Celebrating a special occasion with your special someone? Our Romantic Package includes a first-class view of the Mekong river, flowers for her, bubbly, and candlelight to set the mood.

Bounmi works with a select number of exceptional locals to provide you with a variety of authentic Luang Prabang tour experiences. We develop close relationships with the people we work with and are excited to be able to expand on the types of authentic local experiences we offer to visitors.
