A MEKONG SUNSET CRUISE

There’s nothing quite like a stunning sunset to take your breath away and here on the Mekong – we sure have some of the best. Take an evening cruise with us and end your day with a beautiful sundown on the Mekong river. Relax on-board with drinks and snacks and enjoy panoramic views of the sunset dancing across the horizon, painting the sky with vibrant shades of orange, purple, red and pink.

Set off at dusk from Luang Prabang and relax on a leisurely cruise up the Mekong river. Revel in the breath-taking landscapes and the unique sights and sounds of life on the river as we cruise past local villages preparing for nightfall. See the local villagers streaming down to the river to have a refreshing dip after a long day’s work. Watch as kids play on the riverbanks, trying to get in a little more fun before the day ends. Boat captains arrive back with their boats after a day out on the river and fishermen proudly haul their catches back to their homes. The shorelines buzz with activity as dusk colours the Mekong’s waters with a beautiful golden hue. Enjoy refreshing beverages and watch the sun slowly sinking behind the mountains. After 1.5 hours of cruising time, you will arrive back in Luang Prabang.

If you would like to enjoy the Mekong sunset with a unique local culinary experience, have a look at our Mekong Dinner Cruise, Mekong Romance Cruise or Mekong Sunset Cocktail Cruise for more information.

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.
