Enjoy a full day experiencing and learning about holistic wellness with the magnificent Mekong as your setting. Discover the spiritual side of Laos on this unique Bounmi cruise experience.
This tour starts from the ancient capital of Luang Prabang, where a traditional Lao slow boat will be waiting to take you on a journey through the Mekong’s magical waters. You’ll get a glimpse of authentic Laotian life as you cruise past the shoreline of Ban Xiengmen where many generations have made their living on the Mekong river, and who will greet you with heart-warming smiles. Your cruise will make a stop at Wat Had Siew where your tour continues on land at this beautiful Buddhist Lao temple. Here, with Ms. Korn to guide you, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in the custom of almsgiving and learn about the spiritual connection that exists between the monastic communities and local folk. As we travel down the Mekong to our next destination, meditation discussions and practice will take place on-board the slow boat with Ms. Korn, an esteemed meditation practitioner and teacher who is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience.
As noon approaches, you’ll arrive at Mekong Eden Farm where its founder, Mr. Om, will be present to welcome you personally onto this sustainable organic farm. Ms. Korn will guide you in a Mindfulness Eating session as you enjoy a delicious organic lunch with organic teas, all prepared by MEF using fresh ingredients from their gardens. Learn about the food you are eating whilst surrounded by the amazing Mekong scenery and natural landscapes. After lunch, you can relax and recharge in the hands of trained mindfulness therapists as they deliver spa treatments on the beach or in the gardens. There will be an hour of reflection time as we cruise back to the main city of Luang Prabang.
This Holistic & Mindfulness Mekong tour was crafted with care and made possible with the rich knowledge, close relationships and personal friendships we’ve created with Laotian natives, local communities, and the mighty Mekong herself.
