There is no better way to explore Cambodia and Vietnam than sailing on Aqua Expedition’s new luxury cruises. The Aqua Mekong is custom-designed 20 suite luxury cruiseship sailing on the Mekong River in Cambodia and Vietnam beginning in the Fall of 2014. Each day of the journey will be packed with new discoveries as you explore remote places along the Mekong by both water and on foot.
Travelers will get the chance to spot unusual wildlife and popular landmarks, and meet with local native people. On and off shore excursions along this fascinating river, lead to flooded emerald forests and bamboo stilt villages accessible only by boat, among flocks of painted storks and spot billed pelicans in their last Southeast Asian refuge then on to Chinese wing tipped pagoda temples and remote Buddhist monasteries.
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.
Aqua Expeditions offer 3, 4 and 7 night luxury cruises. Reservations now open for the Mekong River’s first 5-star cruise experience on the historic and culturally rich waterway in Southeast Asia.
