Set out into the pastoral countryside with our expert guides, exploring serene Buddhist temples by bicycle, kayaking the river’s caramel waters, and perusing stilt village markets.

There are three, four or seven-night itineraries, or better still, we can create your very own getaway. Whatever you decide, we can tailor the best-personalised experience for you, your friends and family.
Culture and civilisations have flourished around great rivers throughout history, and the Mekong is no exception. The opportunity to discover the rich heritage and traditions enriched by 2,000 years of human history, is what makes the Mekong river cruise one of Asia’s most epic and worthwhile journeys on water.
The Mighty Mekong River, Vietnam’s fictional “Nung River” has many historic war sites and real-life stories to be discovered. This Vietnam river cruise offers a look into the mystical past of Indonesian culture making it the perfect Vietnam holiday.
At the same time, the lower Mekong basin is also a cradle for nature. It’s home to a wealth of fish that provides sustenance for the people and a myriad species of large waterbirds. In the verdant rice fields dotted with pockets of lush greenery, more bird and domestic wildlife species can be spotted along with the ubiquitous Brahman oxen that diligently work the fields.
Aqua Mekong offers luxurious cruising for those ready to experience a new adventure. Enjoy world-class Cambodian and Vietnamese cruises from the safety and comfort of a state of the art ship.
Some Cruise Highlights
On this Mekong river cruise, you will get to experience the most authentic facets of Mekong culture and ways of life while embracing the beautiful landscapes of the Mekong river basin in the comfort and luxury of the Aqua Mekong. Expert English-speaking guides will show you unspoilt nature and age-old traditions; every day on the Mekong is an opportunity to discover something new and amazing.
Best time to visit
The tropical climate of Cambodia and Vietnam means temperatures are warm year-round, which makes cruising even more appealing as temperatures on the Mekong can be 2 to 5 degrees Fahrenheit (1 to 3 degrees Celsius) lower. Excursions aboard the Aqua Mekong are also organised to take advantage of pleasant weather during certain times of the day.
On the Aqua Mekong, cruises run year-round. Sailing aboard a river cruise ship on the Mekong, you will also find that there’s always something fascinating to experience throughout the year.
