The first dining cruise on the Mekong in Luang Prabang, the Nava Mekong offers passengers a leisurely lunch cruise or sunset dinner cruise. Both feature a delicious set menu of traditional Lao fare. 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.
