Connecting the countries of Indochina – Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, the Mekong River is one of the most important waterways and trade routes in the region. Cruising along the Mekong unveils a way of life dating back centuries ago and provides an insight into a number of fascinating cultures, rural villages and bustling cities.
The land along the Mekong River is rich and history and remains relatively unexplored. A cruise down the river will take you into the heart of the region at a leisurely pace, yet ensures minimal impact on the beautiful environment.
Popular voyages along the Mekong River run between Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and Siem Reap in Cambodia. Along the way, you can take a trip to floating markets, explore ancient temples and discover more of this fascinating region. From your final destination of Siem Reap, a visit to Angkor Wat is a necessity. This is the magnificent site og the Khmer civilisation and provides hours upon hours of interest in studying the intricate carvings and architecture.
Here at the Luxury Cruise Company, we recommend a voyage along the Mekong River with APT River Tours or Viking River Cruises, two world-renowned luxury river-cruise operators.
