Cruising the Mekong since 2015
Bounmi is a small team of Mekong river specialists who have built a reputation for delivering exceptional Mekong river experiences. We are happily located in the quaint UNESCO heritage town of Luang Prabang and specialize in private cruises and authentic local experiences.
Bounmi came to life in the autumn of 2015 with the launch of our first custom slow boat and signature-style cruises. Every one of our cruises is customized in its own way and unique from the rest. The combination of our custom boats, personalized cruise services, and expert local insights into the river win us rave reviews from delighted customers.
Over the past few years we have continued to learn and grow our brand to better serve our guests. In 2018, we replaced our first boat with Nava Song, our new custom 20-meter traditional slow boat. In addition, we built a new 18-meter custom riverboat for a little fun. Welcome to the fleet Nava Noi! And in 2019 we welcomed Nava Thip to our fleet, a beautiful 45-meter traditional slow boat, carefully hand-crafted and designed for cruising the Mekong.
Our passion for being on the river never fades. We believe everyone should experience being on the Mekong river at least once when visiting Luang Prabang, whether it be on a custom boat, traditional boat, fishing boat…whatever floats your boat! From visiting popular sites to stepping off the beaten track, there are so many great ways to explore the Mekong and we aim to make these experiences accessible to everyone.
The Mekong is our home, our haven, our happy place. We love sharing the Mekong’s magic and secrets with others, creating memorable Mekong moments with our guests, family, and friends. We would love to show you around our home and look forward to hosting you on your Mekong adventure.
