Minor Hotels launches river travel with Mekong Kingdoms Luxury Cruises in Thailand
Travellers can join Mekong Kingdoms' flagship Boheme, a 42-metre, 13 cabin luxury barge at Luang Prabang or Chiang Khong
Minor Hotels is launching a selection of river cruises with bespoke itineraries. Mekong Kingdoms cruises, with their fleet of five vessels, offers guests services such as gourmet meals and cabins with curated experiences both aboard and ashore.
The fleets will cruise over the Mekong River from Thailand’s Golden Triangle to the ancient Lao capital and now UNESCO World Heritage city of Luang Prabang.
The journey from Chiang Rai/Chiang Khong to Luang Prabang is two nights as it heads downstream. The upstream cruise takes three nights.
Itineraries include guided jungle treks, a visit to the Pak Ou caves – which showcase limestone karst formations and thousands of Buddha images left by pilgrims over the centuries.
The cruise also offers ‘Gypsy’ an ultra-exclusive two-cabin cruiser along the Mekong for up to four passengers
“Our guests are travellers who desire not just a unique travel experience, but one that enhances the ambiance of the destinations,” Minor Hotels CEO Dillip Rajakarier explains, “Mekong Kingdoms cruises harken back to the days when the journey is savoured as much as the destination.”
Mekong Kingdoms cruises joins Minor Hotels’ existing fleet of Manohra Dining Cruises in Bangkok and Anantara Overnight Cruises that sail from Bangkok to Thailand’s capital of Ayutthaya.
