Mekong Delta River Cruises

Journey along the Mekong Delta

The Mekong Delta is a veritable water-world, a magical sweep of rich forests, lush jungles and bustling cities teeming with native wildlife and humanity blissfully co-existing in this fertile region.

Our luxury Mekong Delta cruises will deliver you all the wondrous sights, tastes and sounds of magical Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

Known to the locals as the ‘River of the Nine Dragons’, honouring the nine tributaries flowing into the mighty main river, the 39,000 square kilometre-long Mekong Delta extends south and west from Saigon to the Gulf of Thailand and its ever-changing landscapes are reflected in the pace of life along its banks.

From the languid motion of the countryside where buffalo meander through emerald rice paddies to the contrasting thriving throngs of the cities, while elsewhere ancient gold-topped pagodas punctuate the skies.

Immerse yourself in the magic on one of our luxurious Mekong Delta river cruises where you will encounter Vietnam’s magnificent Halong Bay and the untouched old-world charms of Hoi An.

Be enchanted by the water puppets of Hanoi, explore the Cu Chi tunnels and be captivated by the World Heritage-Listed temples of Angkor Wat and Wat Phou.

With so much to see and experience, our Mekong Delta river cruises range from total immersion with a 27 day Grand Indochina and Luxury Mekong cruise to an unparalleled 8 day cruise through Vietnam and Cambodia, with 22 day, 17 day and 13 day Mekong Delta rivers cruises for you to choose from.
