Vat Phou Cruise (Affiliated Product)

Print This Page »

The awe-inspiring pre-Angkorian Vat Phou dates back over a thousand years and is widely regarded as one of the most outstanding examples of Khmer architecture, while Oun Moung exudes an atmosphere of a city that has been lost in the jungle for centuries. Embracing the beauty and power of the Mekong and the exotic mystique of ancient Khmer ruins, this 3-day Asian Oasis Mythical Journey combines the highlights of the region for an unforgettable experience.

A boutique river-borne hotel is the setting for this journey through the timeless landscapes of Southern Laos. Here, the serenity of this vast and smooth expanse of water is accentuated by the stunning Si Phan Don, the "4,000 Islands," and further down, Southeast Asia's largest waterfalls at Pha Pheng. The leisurely cruise along the fascinating Mekong is as relaxing as it is historic and gives extraordinary insight into the ancient civilization that once shared your path down this mighty waterway.

The Vat Phou Cruise is owned and operated by our friends at Mekong Cruises.
