Your Host & The Team
“Vat Phou crews are local villagers from along the southern end of the Mekong River in Laos, providing income to communities we visit. While learning the importance of hygiene and living in a healthy environment, they are still continuing to improve their English and customer service skills through regular training programs. All crew on the boat live and work in harmony and consider one other as family. This is the beauty of the Vat Phou Cruise.”
