Located in Luang Prabang, Shompoo cruise is a travel agency specializing in Mekong river cruises. We run three traditional slow-boats full of charm. Our devoted and motivated team is ready to share our passion and insight on this legendary River with you as you cruise with us.
Our guide will wait with a SHOMPOO CRUISE sign from 8:30 AM in front of the Lao immigration office. After having completed the VISA procedure, we will go to the Houay Xay boat pier by tuk tuk.
Then, you will embark for the first time on one of our luxury boats for the Mekong downstream cruise. On the way, the boat will take its first stop in Pak Tha, to have necessary boat documents signed. The second stop will be to visit a Hill tribe village along the Mekong River. Our guide will explain the way of living and the origins of these rural populations.
Lunch is served on board, and during the afternoon, you will be free to relax and taste local flavors with seasonal snacks and drinks. The boat will arrive in Pakbeng before sunset, where you will retreat to your accommodation for the night.
