Heritage Line to Chart New Waters on Upper Mekong

One of Southeast Asia’s leading boutique cruise operators Heritage Line, is making progress on its sumptuous new ten-berth ship Anouvong, which will be the first luxury boat to ply the upper-Mekong river in Laos upon its launch later this year.

The cruise operator offers two journeys. The shorter sailing travels from Luang Prabang to the town of Huay Xai on the Laos/Thailand border (or vice versa) over three days. A longer journey unfolds over seven or nine nights and charts a course between the Laos/Thailand border at Huay Xai and Vientiane.

The shorter trip offers spectacular scenery, a trip to the village of Huay Palang to meet ethnic Khmu tribes and other highlights such as Pak Ou Caves, which is home to 4000 sacred Buddhist statues.

The longer alternative embraces sight-seeing along remote river areas and various activities such as kayaking through calm, shallow stretches and a gourmet banquet on a river sandbank. The longer journey is also inclusive of a full discovery of Luang Prabang at the mid-point of the journey.
