Each season of cruising on the magnificent Mekong River has its benefits, but the wet season (May through October) is ideal. Higher water levels lead to the smoothest of sailing, and less tourists make it a quieter time of the year to travel. In the dry season (November through April), lower humidity yields slightly cooler temperatures.
Mekong River cruising offers iconic destinations, everlasting memories, and the essence of endless experience. With our specially designed Emerald Harmony
Star-Ship, guests can sail straight into the centre of Ho Chi Minh City and dock in the heart of Vietnam’s cosmopolitan city. Choose to begin your Mekong River cruise from here or start your journey of discovery in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Along the way, you have the opportunity to visit local villages including My Tho, Sa Dec, My An Hung, Anh Long, Long Khan and Hong Ngu.
Our 8-Day Majestic Mekong River Cruise
offers a chance to cruise, wine, and dine on-board and also step off the boat to explore iconic destinations, like Tan Long Pagoda. Savour the delectable local coconut cream candy, explore grapefruit gardens, touch silk made from the mac nua fruit, receive a Buddhist Blessing, and explore the historic stories of Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh, otherwise known as the “Pearl of Asia.” For a longer itinerary, explore our 13-Day Majestic Mekong Discoverer Cruise journey
