The Mekong River begins high up on the Tibetan Plateau and flows through beautiful Southeast Asian countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Burma. Far East River Cruises give travellers a unique opportunity to see some of the famous locations, as well as a few hidden gems, that lie along the banks of this 2,700 mile long watercourse.
With sightseeing tours in major cities like Hanoi, Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Ming City, holidaymakers will get a real sense of the diverse culture and intriguing history that makes the Far East so appealing. By contrast, excursions to small riverside communities like Sa Dec, Cai Be and Chong Koh provide a fascinating insight into lifestyles in the more rural parts of Southeast Asia. Combine these experiences with UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Ha Long Bay and the temples of Angkor, and you have an irresistible array of locations in your itinerary.
