With its mystical temples and exotic sights, sounds and smells, Asia offers a rich and vibrant experience for any traveler.

  • 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.
