THE LUANG SAY BOATS
Luang Say Mekong Cruises has three boats travelling from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang, or, from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai.
All programs stop over for one night in our Luang Say Lodge in Pakbeng.
Our boats are 34 metres long with a 420 HP engine and a steel hull for strength and safety. The boats have a capacity for 40 people seated in comfortable chairs and benches. Each seat has an open air vista. We also have coffee tables with magazines and booklets to read during your cruise. The central section of our Luangsay boats have bench seats, a perfect spot for a game of cards, to share your Mekong stories, or to have lunch.
Each cruise departure has both a French and an English speaking guide who are able to answer your questions and point out the many sights of interest along the way. We also have a fearless captain, a qualified mechanic and a boat boy.
On board we have two western style toilets, one at the back of the boat as well as one next to the bar in the central section. Life jackets are available in a variety of sizes including sizes for children. There are also rails around the sides of the boat for passenger safety. Luggage can be stored and locked securely overnight in a large compartment underneath the deck.
