Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos
Mekong River Cruises

Mekong River Cruises

For those with time on their side, there can be few more exotic options than an extended cruise on the Mekong River between Vietnam and Cambodia.

A laid-back cruise on the Mekong River is a wonderful way to kick back and watch the world go by, taking you from the delta in Vietnam to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap in neighbouring Cambodia.

Plying this route you'll find an array of ships catering to all budgets, with cross-border itineraries ranging from three to eight days on board. Our favourites include the traditionally-styled Pandaw boats and the sumptuous RV Jayarvarman. Most cruises offer a full schedule of shore excursions, enabling you to stretch your legs and witness the transformation as you travel from the bustling delta to the quiet Cambodian backwaters.

RV Jayarvarman

For a taste of colonial-era glamour, nothing on the Mekong quite compares to the wonderful RV Jayarvarman. Built in 2009, the ship marries French colonial and Indochinese style to create a uniquely elegant and luxurious experience. Each of the 27 spacious stateroom cabins has a private balcony from which to sit back and soak up the glorious scenery as you cruise along the river.

The ship offers a number of programmes both up and downstream, ranging from 3 days/2 nights to the full 8 days/7 nights, which takes you all the way from Siem Reap to the Mekong Delta.
