Overview

Cruise along the mighty Mekong River through the heart of South East Asia and explore fascinating water-borne worlds, from floating villages to colourful markets. Step back in time as our journey unfolds through stunning countryside: farmers with conical hats work in fields that disappear into the distance, whilst water buffalo plough the paddies until the sun sets in a blood-red explosion of colour. Observe riverside life and the wooden houses balancing on stilts, as giggling children watch us go by.  

We visit Cambodia and Siem Reap, gateway to one of the great wonders of the world – Angkor, once the world’s largest city with a staggering one million inhabitants and an incredible 200 temples. We also stay in Phnom Penh, Cambodia's capital, beautifully located at the confluence of the Mekong and Tonle Sap and considered the most beautiful of the ‘French’ colonial cities of Indochina.

In Vietnam, the people and landscape are different, and the pace of life is faster. See the legacies of past rulers – the Chinese, Khmers, Portuguese, Japanese and French – in an eclectic mix of temples and pagodas, along with palaces, mansions and neo-classical buildings. Today, the motorcycles and western dress of the industrious youth happily co-exist with orange-clad Buddhist monks and political posters from a bygone era. Now is the time to visit these captivating and colourful destinations while so much of this distinctive heritage remains; and the best way to experience them is from the beautiful arterial waterway, the stunning Mekong River.
