The Mekong River remains one of the mightiest - and most unspoilt - rivers in the world, a description you can only fully understand once you have cruised along the Mekong with its sparkling waters and witnessed the spectacular beauty that lies just beyond its banks.
From the Tibetan Plateau, the river - tenth longest on Earth and Asia’s seventh longest - the Mekong flows some 3,050 miles through China’s Yunnan province, then on through Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and finally Vietnam. En route to the Mekong Delta where it divides into nine channels emptying into the South China Sea, it runs through a number of familiar and famously exotic destinations: Hanoi, Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, Ho Chi Minh City, Vientiane and Luang Prabang.
Some parts of the Mekong, those that flow through the beautiful countryside of Laos, were formerly inaccessible. While the journey is considerably more comfortable in modern times, the river is still a wild force of nature, so a cruise on it is an adventure to remember.
On this part of the Mekong, quiet and calm parts of the river alternate with most dramatic and exciting shore sceneries, including mountains clad in tropical lush green vegetation, impressive rock formations and secluded villages along the river banks.
Now, All Leisure Holidays is pleased to be able to offer you Mekong river cruises in these magical, unexplored places.
What’s more, these special holidays also include extensive sightseeing with expert local guides in Siem Reap, gateway to the amazing temples of Angkor, and in Luang Prabang, one of the most beautiful towns in Southeast Asia.
