The Lunch cruise travels as far as Pak Ou Caves, with a visit to an ethnic minority village. Guests of the dinner cruise enjoy the sunset and dance performance provided by local villagers in traditional Lao costume.

Very enjoyable & romantic sunset cruise with good food. Very relaxed in the style of Laos. Dancing was OK, but it was good to see the dancers chatting on the board before.
