Mekong River

Take to the water with a river cruise where an entire new world awaits you. Attracting the culturally aware, cruise through the heart of a country where land is always in sight and scenery is always at eye level.

Not to be confused with ocean cruising, allowing you to only see the country’s coastlines and ports, river cruising offers a completely different experience and allows you to see a country’s interior.

Cruise via picturesque rural villages, focus on smaller town’s and take simple tours with local English speaking guides to gain a true insight of the local area.

The rivers of Asia are fast becoming hotspots for travellers offering an unforgettable journey of a lifetime, bringing exotic parts of scattered regions into reach.

This adventurous way of seeing these regions, never offers a dull moment as rivers are generally teeming with life, human or wild – the key is to pick the right cruise for you.

Renowned Asia rivers include the mighty Mekong River, the twelfth longest river in the world – it starts its flow from the Tibetan Plateau Springs and runs through several countries including China, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam before discharging into the South China Sea.

In southern Vietnam the river flows into a rich delta with thousands of waterways forming a labyrinth of major currents and secluded canals that are lined with vegetation, mangrove swamps and verdant rice fields.

Providing a lifeline to millions of people, the river offers a fascinating insight into the daily life of the locals – observe bartering skills at bustling floating markets, taste the potency of locally brewed rice wine, witness small family cottage industries and watch artisans create beautiful pieces of art.

The sights, sounds and smells of the Mekong River will truly tantalise the travel taste buds.
