River expedition company Pandaw has revealed its new 10-night Laos Mekong sailing on its newest ship the Laos Pandaw. The itinerary will commence in 1 November 2015 offering Pandaw guests the chance to travel deep into the Laos mountains, traverse rapids and gorges and visit local tribal villages and Buddhist temples along the Mekong River.
The Laos Pandaw will be the 14th ship to join the fleet, providing just ten staterooms (including one Owner’s Suite) for a truly bespoke five-star experience. Guests will spend two nights at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang and explore its Buddhist temples, Royal Palace and atmospheric night market. Observe the morning alms attended by a thousand monks before travelling inland to discover tribal villages, swim in jungle pools and traverse rapids and gorges deep in remote Laos jungle. Guests booking before 5 January 2015 can benefit from a 10 per cent early booking saving.
Cruise-only from £1,791 per person based on two people sharing a main deck stateroom, fully inclusive of all excursions, crew gratuities, meals and non-premium drinks. Transfers between ports of embarkation and the international airport at the start and end of the voyage included.
