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.

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.
