Traveling through Asia is an enchanting experience, with unforgettable highlights and the experience of local life. Seeing it all can be hard, but river cruising is the ideal way to uncover these delights. Imagine checking into a luxurious cabin and unpacking just once, while all the sights and sounds come to you, with the conveniences of a boutique hotel at your fingertips. Enjoy impeccable service, spacious, air-conditioned cabins with private balconies on most cruises, and on-board facilities including restaurants and bars, sun decks, swimming pools and spas. It is common to stop at small villages and markets to experience local life. We use boutique ships, with high staff to passenger ratios and the chance to meet other travelers, and access areas on-shore where a larger group would not be able to go.

The complete experience
Using our expert local knowledge we have combined each cruise with some unique touring on the ground. If you have time, we strongly recommend choosing one of these longer itineraries.

Their passion for the region is inspiring, and you can expect experiences even the guidebooks don’t know about. If you would prefer to handpick your additional touring, we can tailor a package just for you.

Asia, away from the crowds:
In much of Asia, river cruising still remains a niche way to travel. On the Mekong will see a handful of other boats and the shore excursions take in areas of the country often missed on land-only tours.
Fair pricing, with everything included:
On a river cruise vacation you will know the cost before you leave home, with everything paid for in advance.
Private balconies and breathtaking scenery:
On every Cruise in Asia, we only choose ships that boast private balconies. Alone time is important on all journeys and it does not get much better than enjoying the soaring scenery of The Yangtze of the flood plans and rice paddies of The Mekong from the comfort of your own cabin.
A group of like-minded travelers:
Much of what we call travel is defined by the people we meet. Small boat river cruising is the perfect way to meet like-minded travelers. With offices here in North America as well as in the United Kingdom and Australia, you can look forward to enjoying the great rivers of Asia with travelers of similar interests.
Well-paced shore excursions:
Our river cruise itineraries use the finest ships available with a focus on shore excursions that offer genuinely authentic insights into the local cultures. All pre and post cruise arrangements also include touring options undertaken by trained Travel Indochina guides.
Luxury and service:
We only use the best possible cruise ships available. On The Mekong we have a long offered cruise itineraries on The Mekong’s two finest vessels, The Jahan and The Jayavarman with both offering unparalleled levels of luxury and service.
