The name ‘Mekong’ comes from the Lao and Thai term ‘Mae Nam Khong’, meaning ‘Kong, the Mother of Water’. The Mekong, at 4,350 km long, is the third longest river in Asia and passes through six countries: China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. On top of this, we will visit capital cities such as Hanoi in Vietnam and Phnom Phen in Cambodia and other notable locations such as Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Long Bay.
On a serene cruise along the Mekong, you will be delighted by incredible views. Asia is full of unique and beautiful architecture such as grand pagodas, ancient temples, enchanting cathedrals and villages floating on the river. The Jade Emperor Pagoda, Angkor Wat, and the Cathedral of Notre Dame are sights not to be missed.
If you want to catch the scenery from inland, hop onto a rickshaw for a rapid ride through the city or take a peaceful stroll through the quiet rural villages. The river meets with numerous others on its journey and is known as the Tien River in Vietnam. Meander through phenomenal scenery, admiring a range of landscapes and visiting spectacular locations on a river cruise along the Mekong.
