Remarkable, diverse and colourful
A cruise on the Mekong River transports you to another world. Known as the lifeblood of Southeast Asia, the river traverses between China, Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, providing a glimpse into the established ancient history and diverse cultures of the region along the way. Observe the otters, giant catfish, turtles, crocodiles and a huge variety of bird life, as you sail through the channels and open stretches of water swathed with leafy jungle, in the remarkable ecosystem.
The world’s largest and most diverse continent boasts the longest coastline and the widest climate extremes. The Mekong River is home to an estimated 850 freshwater fish species, and is a vital conduit for both people and goods. On a luxury cruise you can relax and witness life at a gentler pace. All year round the temperature in the Mekong delta is about 26°C, with only slight variations. The ideal time to visit is during the dry season between October and May.
Explore the world of ancient temples, pagodas and Buddhist monasteries. In the colourful busy port towns you can bag a few bargains in the vibrant bustling markets. Admire the traditional floating houses, fishing farms and villages, and explore the undiscovered evergreen islands in a tranquil landscape that is mesmerising.
