Mekong River Cruising

Discover the Mekong

The Mekong Delta is quintessential South East Asia. The lifeblood of the region, it is a vast network of tributaries overflowing with vibrant life. Here the river is king and its people have developed ingenious ways to live in harmony with this beautiful landscape.

Get to know this area intimately on board one of the newest and most opulent river cruise boats sailing these waters, the Emerald Harmony which launched August 2019. Journey throughout the maze of waterways where life is simple and traditional, yet fascinating and captivating. Here you will find life that has continued unchanged for decades, dependent on the river but thriving in the lush, fertile environment.

Cruise by floating markets and get to know the Delta inhabitants water-based lives. See children riding on the backs of water buffalo, verdant rice paddies filled with workers in conical hats and a range of water going vessels plying the narrow waterways. Shop for anything from clothes to fruit and souvenirs to spring rolls all from the side of your luxurious river cruise ship. Pass floating villages where you will be fascinated by the resourcefulness of the people and their unique way of life, visit quaint villages to get a real insight into traditional rural lifestyles which are far removed from our own and learn why this region is called the “rice bowl” of Vietnam. Being one of the most important and successful agricultural regions in the world it holds a myriad of exquisite foods to sample.

Spend time in Phnom Penh, the regal capital of Cambodia. A city of contrasts, it provides opportunities to experience the elaborate Royal Palace complex, while also housing a stark reminder of the tragic recent history under the Khmer Rouge regime at the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng prison. Visit a local monastery and receive a traditional Buddhist blessing or soak up the atmosphere at an ancient temple in Oudong. This is a region that will allow you to get up close and discover a new and fascinating way of life, to reach remote and little-visited areas, sample exotic cuisine purchased from floating markets and learn of a culture based on intensive agriculture and a warm community spirit.

Welcome to the magnificent Mekong!
