Asia has always been a firm favourite for any cruiser; from its cosmopolitan capitals to its remote, hidden villages and ancient history. There is something for everyone in Asia; and on a river cruise you can get right in to the heart and experience even more of this magical and mythical destination.
Set sail along the Mekong River between Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) in Vietnam and Siem Reap in Cambodia, two vibrant yet completely different cities. As you wind your way through these lush countries, you will visit floating villages, local markets, breath-taking Temples - such as Angkor Wat - along with fascinating historical sites like the Cu Chi Tunnels and the Phnom Penh Killing Fields.
Discover the remote towns and villages lining the banks of India’s Lower Ganges River on an unforgettable river cruise. Perhaps explore Mother Teresa’s house, Bengal’s terracotta temples, Hazaduari Palace and the bustling city of Kolkata. Visit former outposts of French and British colonies and witness idyllic rural India.
The longest river in Asia and the third longest in the world at more than 3,915 miles, the Yangtze river flows from the Tibetan Plateau in the west to the East China Sea. A China river cruise will take you through the impressive Three Gorges (Qutang, Wuxia, & Xiling) and view the immense dam, China's largest construction project since the Great Wall. Qutang, the shortest and most dramatic gorge, is an unimaginable place where you can nearly touch the perpendicular mountains rising from the Yangtze River banks.
Discover one of the world's least-explored destinations, Myanmar, which has been left untouched by visitors for a generation. Feel the warmth and grace of the inquisitive locals; see the fading British colonial legacy blending with the predominantly Buddhist culture and taste the intoxicating combination of flavours from surrounding influences.
