This is a tropical adventure like no other, exploring areas no other cruise ship has been before. A truly cultural rich journey awaits, away from tourism as you know it. Local people in remote jungle villages will be excited to welcome you, as your ship brings the only visitors to some parts of this mighty river.

Magnificent scenery envelops you along the Mekong River, taking you from Thailand’s Golden Triangle into the heart of Laos via the UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang. Travel along formerly inaccessible stretches of Southeast Asia’s most exciting river.

Stroll through colourful markets, and experience first-hand the Laotian people’s traditional way of life and unique culture.

Relax aboard your adult-only exclusive river vessel, which carries only 28 guests, and enjoy the unspoiled nature, rare birds, strange rock formations and biodiversity along this wondrous immersive adventure.

Available: September – March
