Vietnam

Discover the fascinating history and enchanting rural landscapes of Vietnam on a small-ship Mekong River cruise, taking you from the pulsing streets of Ho Chi Minh City into the heart of the Mekong Delta. Slowly cruise past terraced rice paddies and traditional villages en route to the UNESCO-listed Khmer temples of Angkor in neighbouring Cambodia. Explore the bird-filled waters of Tonle Sap and wander amidst the magnificent architecture of Phnom Penh. A Mekong River cruise can easily be combined with an overnight junk excursion in Halong Bay from Vietnam’s northern hub, Hanoi.
