Cooking cruises

Cooking classes with a difference!


Want to learn about cooking Lao cuisine while cruising on the Mekong River? You can.


Our cooking classes are delivered by a professional Lao chef. Pheng has over 10 years experience in the profession. He will teach you how to prepare and cook your own meal. The menu is authentic Lao cuisine. Everything is supplied and we limit numbers to a maximum of 15 people (require a minimum of 2 people). This is a great opportunity to combine a new experience with a comfortable cruise on the magnificent Mekong.


We have two cooking cruise options:

  1. Sunset cooking cruise; timed to enjoy your self-prepared dinner while the sun sets over the Mekong. This cruise runs for a comfortable two hours, taking you slowly up river, then down river past Luang Prabang before returning around and back to the pier. Departure times are designed to coincide with sunset. Contact us for times.

  2. Pak Ou caves cooking cruise; includes a cooking class on your way to visiting the famous Buddha caves.


There will be plenty of time to relax with drinks, fine food, and great service.
