Asia River Cruises

Asia River Cruises

With its mystical temples and exotic sights, sounds and smells, Asia offers a rich and vibrant experience for any traveler. And there is perhaps no better way to experience Asia than in the comfort of a luxurious river ship. Cruising through Vietnam and Cambodia on the Mekong has become a bucket list staple for many cruisers, and those who want to push further afield can try Burma's Irrawaddy, India's Ganges or China's Yangtze.

Cruise Lines for Asia River Cruises

Choose an Asia River Cruise

  • A Burma river cruise experience is far removed from that which is the norm in Europe. Vessels range from ultra-luxury to traditional Burmese style, but what they have in common is the incomparable scenery.
  • The Mekong flows from China's Tibetan Plateau, through Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam; many cruises visit Ho Chi Minh City and offer land tours to Hanoi.
  • China's longest river is also a hot destination for exotic cruise trips; typical cruises are paired with land tours, and popular stops include Beijing and Shanghai.
