Cruise on the Yangtze, Mekong, Irrawaddy and more
The UK government changed its advice around the ban on cruise ships on 20 July 2020, allowing us to now take river cruises.
This is a wise course of action. River cruise ships, like our very own Victoria Mekong, are far smaller than ocean going liners, carry a fraction of the passengers, and are always in close proximity to the shore, and therefore to local healthcare. The Victoria Mekong also exclusively cruises a quieter stretch of the Mekong Delta with small group excursions to destinations firmly off the beaten track.
Some of the world’s greatest rivers flow through Asia – allow them to slow down the pace of your holiday and show you the landscapes, history and culture of some extraordinary destinations. Cruise through the Three Gorges on the mighty Yangtze, drift amongst the lush paddy fields and orchards of the Mekong - as seen on Channel 4's Great Canal Journeys - float past the rich artefacts of the Irrawaddy or get off-the-beaten-track on Burma’s Chindwin, Vietnam’s Red River or India’s Brahmaputra – whichever you choose, an incredible experience awaits.
If you're considering a tour to South East Asia then a Mekong river cruise is a must and our brand-new, eco-friendly vessel, Victoria Mekong is amongst the finest on the river. This new vessel is owned by Wendy Wu Tours and has been meticulously built and fitted out to deliver the very best cruise experience on the Mekong. Her 4 and 5 day cruises take a more considered course along the river aimed at showing you a less commercial and more authentic slice of river life, whilst her 35 cabins - all with balcony - include two double roomed suites and are appointed to the highest standards. On deck you'll find an Infinity Pool, jacuzzis and even a mini-golf course! Mekong river cruises simply don't get better than this whether you're looking to head upstream from Vietnam or down stream from Phnom Penh.
With 20 years’ experience in cruising, Pandaw voyage lovingly-crafted boats infused with colonial charm down the rivers of Southeast Asia and India. A reincarnation of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company, the elegant vessels are modelled on the original river steamers with each ship hand-finished in brass and teak. Shallow drafts help Pandaw reach destinations that other ships simply cannot go. Whilst the service is second to none, there is no dressing up for dinner and no ‘captain’s table’, just a friendly, convivial atmosphere as you take in the incredible sights.
Whether it’s the natural splendour of the Yangtze or glimpses of rural life along the Mekong, we have an Asia River Cruise that is perfect for you.
