Highlightsof Heritage Line Anouvong

Where East Meets West: traditional Laotian with French-colonial blend

Step aboard Anouvong, and prepare to be captivated by a tapestry woven from ancient Laotian artistry and the elegant whisper of French colonialism. Walls adorned with intricate silk tapestries tell the tales of mythical giants and celestial dancers, while polished teak furniture speaks of colonial grandeur. Every corner reveals a delicate dance of influences, where lotus motifs dance across stained glass in the sunlit salon, and hand-painted murals echo the vibrant colors of Laotian temple murals.

Rich and flavourful cuisine of Laos and Southeast Asia

Savor the vibrant dance of chilies and lemongrass in a fiery Luang Prabang larb, let your senses tingle with the tangy embrace of a Vietnamese pho, and embark on a fragrant voyage through Thailand's fragrant green curry. Each meal is a celebration, a vibrant mosaic of fresh, locally-sourced ingredients prepared with love and meticulous attention to detail.

Local dance & music performances

As the sun dips below the Mekong, painting the sky in fiery colors, the Anouvong's deck transforms into a stage for the magic of Laos. Under a blanket of stars, local dancers tell stories through their graceful steps. Silky skirts twirl, hands speak in sign language, and feet tap rhythms that echo the river's beat. Join the fun with the playful "lam vông," where bamboo poles dance like laughter, or witness the mesmerizing trance of "lam tang lao," where hands express emotions spoken.

“We had a great time on the new Anouvong cruise from Vietiane to Huay Xay. The boat is really nice, and the cabins are beautiful. We especially liked our little balcony, especially in the morning when it was cooler. The excursions were well organized, especially the ones to the elephant sanctuary and for kayaking. The meals were all really good, and even the two 15-year-olds in our group enjoyed them. Hope to be back with another great tour!”

9 nights with the Anouvong cruise. beautiful Mekong

(5.0)
“spent 9 nights on the lower deck of the Anouvong cruise. The ship's decorations were lovely, and everything was really clean and taken care of. Our room was big, with a sitting area and a large bathroom. We enjoyed hanging out in the bar area—it was a nice place to relax and talk. The food looked good and had a good mix of options. The staff were awesome - quick, friendly, and funny. The activities were well-organized and not too long. A river cruise is a cool way to travel because there's always something interesting to see. That’s all I feel on the tour, I would definitely go on another river cruise, and my first choice would be your agent :)”

Highlight of our trip to Southeast Asia

(5.0)
“We've been on lots of river cruises in Europe and Australia and visited some cities in Southeast Asia but never really explored the whole region. After an amazing tour on the Anouvong cruise, we can honestly say the reviews didn't do justice to how great the ship is as it traveled through this fascinating country. We were really impressed with all the crew - the people who took care of us, kept the ship clean, the staff, and those who managed the boat—they were all really good at their jobs and super caring. They were clearly dedicated to making the cruise awesome, and what's even better is that they genuinely cared about each passenger. Traveling along the Mekong, we didn't just go to well-known places; we also explored little, peaceful spots. We learned a lot about Laos' culture and history. Some days started with optional tai chi on the deck, followed by a fantastic breakfast with delicious food from Laos. After breakfast, there was usually a trip, then a great lunch, a quick rest, and another afternoon adventure further down the river. In general, there are so many amazing things to say but you’d better try it by yourself. It has our highest recommendation!!”

“The minute we walked into our suite, we were blown away. It was just perfect: Awesome views from all the windows, incredibly beautiful, and super comfy. It was total luxury. The food was yummy, and the staff were amazing. The guide took us to buy souvenirs and shared good tips for bargains, and those memories will stick with us. But what we loved the most was the peace and beauty - we didn't want to leave. We wished we had booked the two-night trip. Our time on the Anouvong cruise will always be in our hearts. Thanks to everyone!”
