Mekong River Cruises
Cambodia - Vietnam
Beginning in the Tibetan plateau, the Mekong winds its way thru China’s Yunnan province, thru Cambodia and Vietnam and then out to the South China Sea. The major artery through Southeast Asia, this River of Nine Dragons, the Mekong, is a source of subsistence for millions who live along its banks in Cambodia and Vietnam. Mekong River cruises have quickly moved to the top of travelers’ “must do” list. From Buddhist temples and floating markets, the experience will provide many memorable experiences.

More about Mekong River Cruises
THE MEKONG RIVER CRUISE VACATION ITINERARY
The river is a gateway to visiting places off the tourist track, appealing to travelers who prefer a relaxing lifestyle and the comforts provided by a floating hotel, combined with firsthand authentic experiences. Generally cruising between Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam and Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Mekong river cruises include a visit to Siem Reap and the magnificent remains of Angkor, a UNESCO World Heritage site. In Vietnam a highlight is an overnight onboard a traditional wooden junk during a cruise in Ha Long Bay.
Most Mekong River cruise itineraries are one-week’s duration, with pre- and post-cruise hotel packages on either end. The most popular Mekong River cruises are with Ama Waterways and Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, both of which have introduced new ships. The most luxurious include Amansara’s Amanbala 1 and Amanbala II, Heritage Cruise Lines’ Jayavarman and Jahan, and Aqua Expeditions’ is Aqua Mekong, operating 3-, 4- and 7-night itineraries.
Our luxury river cruise experts are delighted to arrange your Southeast Asia travels and Mekong River cruise adventure.
