The river vessel Mekong Sun is the most comfortable ship capable of mastering
the wild sections of the upper Mekong. Between Vientiane, Luang Prabang and the
Golden Triangle, the Mekong Sun is the only cabin cruiser available.
Accommodation and service is top level and guests
enjoy a very exclusive yet casual traveling
experience, while they reside in comfortable cabins
and behold previously inaccessible wonders of the
Mekong. A selection of Asian and continental food is
provided throughout the cruise. Special requirements
can be catered for and wine, beer as well as
spirituous beverages are available.
On the Mekong Sun there will be neither captain’s dinner nor any entertaining
games like bingo. Rather than that, guests will go on exciting offshore
excursions and enjoy a program with profound travel information in form of
presentations, speeches and films on relevant topics. Among many others, the
French Mekong Expedition of the 1860s, the daily life of a Buddhist novice or
the plants and fruits of the Mekong region will be the subjects.
The exclusive river vessel Mekong Sun (built in 2006) enables you to go on a

Prabang, one of the most beautiful towns in South-East Asia, traveling along the
