A new development in river cruising in Laos with the launch of an inspired new fleet of five custom-designed river cruisers that will work the upper reaches of the mighty Mekong in northern Laos. Mekong Kingdoms has said.
Vessels range from an opulent 13 all-suite river cruiser celebrating the ‘Golden Age’ of travel with stately, snug cabins and huge picture windows – to a lively ‘floating lounge’, for DJ parties and high-profile events, a 40-metre shuttle for day-time and sunset tours, a lavish two-cabin raft for romantic, free-spirited adventures and a graceful ‘water taxi’ for sunset champagne cruises.
The diverse fleet enables a multitude of cruising options – from high-profile corporate and social events to weddings and romantic getaways according to the company.
Mekong Kingdoms sets itself for cruising between Luang Prabang in Laso to Chiang Kong on the Thailand border, near Chiang Rai and the infamous ‘Golden Triangle’.
From its home-port Luang Prabang, who brands itself as a maverick and is selling what it called “a variety of dynamic cruises that truly stand out from the crowd.
Targeting connoisseurs, adventurers, artisans, daredevils and lovers every aspect is designed to “stand out and impress”. The same attention to detail applies to the dining on board, curated by a celebrity chef bringing an “Iron Chef” twist to ethnic cuisine.
Eclectic onboard activities are also decidedly innovative – from cooking with chefs and yoga with yogis to learning local dances, jewelry making and fishing for river monsters!
“We’re pioneering a charismatic new way to celebrate the colours of Indochina and the soul of Asia along the ‘Amazon of Asia’ – whether for elegant meandering, lively parties and events, or intimate romantic adventures,” said co-founder Jean-Marc Huss.
