AmaWaterways Southeast Asia Cruises

Embark on a river cruise with AmaWaterways in Southeast Asia and prepare to learn all about the ancient temples and thousands of years of history along the banks of the Mekong. Whether you're enjoying fresh pho in Ho Chi Minh City or somberly exploring the Killing Fields and Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh, a river cruise on the Mekong has something for the foodie and history buff alike. Along these immersive itineraries, guests get up close and personal with traditional living, visiting small markets and villages along the river to learn more about the distinctive culture of this region of the world. One marking factor of this region is the rice fields, which are given life by the Nine Dragons River, known to us as the Mekong, but named in Asian folklore for the nine tributaries flowing into the great river. The enthralling, lush forests and interesting stilt houses lining the river will highlight your river cruise in Southeast Asia on AmaWaterways.

Things to Do on a Southeast Asia River Cruise with AmaWaterways


Enjoy a traditional bowl of pho, explore the Angkor Wat temple, or seek enlightenment in ancient Buddhist temples on your AmaWaterways river cruise in Southeast Asia. While exploring Vietnam and Cambodia, you will inevitably become enamored with the amazing architecture and flourishing forests, and it will be a vacation you will never forget. Featured below are a few of our favorite things to do along the banks of the Mekong River with AmaWaterways:


Viet Cong Tunnels in Saigon
  • Cu Chi Tunnel Exploration (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam)
    Climb into these tunnels and be transported to the 1970s, when Viet Cong troops hid during the resistance. There is an underground range where you can try war-era rifles.


Angkor Wat Temple
  • Angkor Wat (Siem Reap, Cambodia)
    Erected in the 12th century, this traditional temple is the largest religious complex in the world, featuring a three-mile moat. Shoulder and leg covering required.


Cai Be Floating Markets

    Hop on a sampan and tour the colorful barges that sell their wares just hours outside of Ho Chi Minh City. Who knows, you could find a new shirt or your favorite snack!


Khmer Rouge regime memorial

    Explore a somber part of the region's history as you pass the Killing Fields, a site of remembrance for lives lost during the Khmer Rouge regime.
