Making River Boat Cruising Cool Again

Category: Tourism, Posted:10 Jun 2017 | 11:48 am

There was a time when upscale adventure travelers plied the great rivers of the world.

Fast forward to today and a new offering in Southeast Asia is tempting visitors with a chic cruising offering.

Upstart Mekong Kingdom in Luang Prabang Laos has launched their 13 suite river cruiser named the Boheme, which not only features traditional luxury but one that could best be termed as a lounge version.

Co-founder of the company Jean-Marc Huss is well known to many in Phuket as an artist and advisor for hotel and residential projects. After moving to Laos a number of years ago, he now calls the UNESCO township home and is embarking on a striking new journey.

What he and the team have assembled with touch points such as art, design, cuisine is transposing a boutique hotel offering onto a water setting.

Other watercraft include a river shuttle for day trips and sunset cocktails. One of my favorites is a twin cabin bespoke cruiser, which has a vibe of intimate privacy.

Mekong Kingdoms are breaking the traditional river boat trend but taking on high level USP’s such as DJ’s for onboard events, organizing entire onboard wedding parties, corporate getaways and private gatherings for friends and families.

The cruise program of the Boheme span two and three nights, running from Luang Prabang to Chiang Kong, which is near Chiang Rai, on Thailand’s border.

A July market debut is in the works and for those seeking a very cool adventure in nearby exotic Laos, this is one not to be missed.

Mekong Kingdom’s 5 vessel fleet is restoring a return to adventure travel with it’s eclectic products that cater to overnight trips, full day tours or for tourists in Luang Prabang who just want to get out of the ordinary for a few hours on the river.

All Zoomed Out. How Collaboration Has Become the Kill Switch of Hotel Creativity

Category: Opinion, Posted:03 Aug 2020 | 09:20 am There is no mistaking the sound of a flushing toilet. It’s not a sudden rainstorm, or the whoosh of a juiced up, flash mob of joggers on steroids passing by on the street. Arguably, it’s a dirty little low-pitched thunder from down under that somehow triggers the gag reflex. Remember Trainspotting?  Welcome to the world […]
