Welcome to Pak Beng, Laos! Our one night stop over on the Luang Say Cruise is here at our exclusive Luang Say Lodge. Pak Beng is well-known by travelers as the midway point on the two day river journey between Huay Say and Luang Prabang.
The Mekong River was once the main transport route through Laos. Out of necessity, Pak Beng became the overnight stop for both cargo and passenger vessels. The town is situated where the Nam Beng River meets into the Mekong. In Lao, Pak means mouth, so Pak Beng is the mouth of the Beng River. Just a little way out of Pak Beng town, on a secluded bank of the Mekong River, sits the Luang Say Lodge.
“The lodge was outstanding – really peaceful location and excellent food, as good as the boat. Very attentive staff and very clean – A highlight of our trip.”
“A great lodge in the middle of nature, totally quiet, great views and a wonderful sound at night. A relaxing break between the 2 days of boat ride to Luang Prabang. Good food, friendly staff. We enjoyed very much sitting on our terrace over the river watching the full moon and listening to quietness.”
