Avalon Waterways River Cruises Vietnam And Cambodia Cruises

Mekong River cruises with Avalon Waterways bring you through the heart of Vietnam and Cambodia aboard an elegant and relaxing river ship. You’ll see amazing Southeast Asian cities like Cai Be, Sa Dec and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, or Phnom Penh, Kampong Tralach and Siem Reap in Cambodia. While aboard an Avalon Waterways river cruise along the Mekong River, you’ll discover the incredible roles that religion and art have played in shaping these Southeast Asian nations. Monasteries and temples seem to appear around every river bank, and the overall feel is peaceful and serene along the Mekong – making this the perfect retreat. Some of Avalon Waterways’ Vietnam and Cambodia river cruises feature time in Bangkok, Thailand – a diverse city beaming with unbelievable history and bright cultures. Dare yourself to try something new and open your mind to the celebrated traditions of Vietnam and Cambodia.

Avalon Waterways offers cruisers the opportunity to explore the impact of the Vietnam War while touring Ho Chi Minh City and nearby towns. You could enter the infamous Cu Chi tunnel hideouts left by the Viet Cong or tour the city’s many cathedrals, theaters and museums. But there’s more to Vietnam than big cities and a war torn past, which is why Avalon Waterways delights in also taking guests through the fertile countryside and hardworking villages along the Mekong.
