Tour Itinerary

On arrival at the Chiang Khong – HuayXai Immigration Check-Point, proceed with formalities and then you take a private slow boat trip down south along the Mekong River to Pak Beng (lunch en route).

A little town on the banks of Mekong River, HuayXai. The fact is that most visitors to Laos treat HuayXai as a stopover to other destinations. This is quite unfortunate since there is a lot to experience in this small town in terms of local life in Laos and it’s worth it to try some local beer, relax on the banks of Mekong or simply interact with fellow tourists here.


Meal: Lunch and Dinner included


Day 02: Pak Beng-Luang Prabang

After having the lovely breakfast, you will enjoy your adventure by boat to Luang Prabang.

Then you will also visit a rice wine distillation village at Ban Sanghai. You should arrive around sunset in to Luang Prabang.

Luang Prabang is one of the beautiful provinces in Laos, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. Considered by many travelers and writers as being the heart of Laotian culture, the tiny town is encircled by mountains and is 700 meters above sea level at the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers. Here visitors are subjected to an inflamed economic bubble that does not apply to the rest of the country. Being Laos' premier tourist destination and (one of Southeast Asia's most beautiful spots, ironically tourists will pay more for the innate pleasures of eating, drinking and sleeping than they would in the country's capital city Vientiane.

Bicycle Tour from Cambodian Border to Siem Riep with Siya

My family and I (3 of us) just spent 6 fantastic days cycling through Cambodia with Siya and our driver. We had an excellent trip - Siya was an outstanding guide, very friendly, very fit and very knowledgeable. He genuinely seemed happy to be guiding us "tourists' around and loves cycling and photography. Siya was a pleasure to spend 6 days with. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to spend quality time in Cambodia and learn about the culture and see the countryside. He has great knowledge of the local bike routes too. Thank you, Siya.

We spent 2 days in Siem Reap with best guide, Siya Pouv! He and his wife Kim took great care of us.

We also visited floating village on the lake and walking thru the markets. His knowledge of Cambodian life and history gave us a real understanding and insight of this country.
