Heritage Line’s newest river cruise boat, Anouvong, is now sailing the upper Mekong River in Laos. This luxurious vessel offers a unique and unforgettable experience, allowing passengers to explore the region’s stunning scenery and rich culture in comfort and style.
Anouvong has 10 cabins on two decks, each with its own private balcony and en-suite bathroom. The cabins are decorated in a traditional Laotian style, with warm woods and rich fabrics. The ship also features a spacious viewing deck, where passengers can relax and enjoy the passing scenery.
Anouvong offers three, seven, and nine-night itineraries on the upper Mekong. The three-night itinerary begins in Huay Xai, Laos, and ends in Luang Prabang. It explores the Golden Triangle, where the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar meet. The seven-night itinerary extends the cruise to Vientiane, the capital of Laos. The nine-night itinerary is the upstream version of the seven-night itinerary, with more time to explore Luang Prabang.
During the cruise, passengers will have the opportunity to visit a variety of interesting places, including:
