Meandering Down the Mekong... Thailand, Laos, Cambodia & Vietnam

21 days from £7,500 per person

The Mekong is the seventh longest river in Asia flowing through Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Historically it has been a major trade route, a natural border and a cultural melting pot for the region. This relaxed journey combines the fascinating natural and historical highlights along its banks in the three countries.

Highlights of the itinerary include a cruise from Chiang Rai to Laos, the beautiful town of Luang Prabang with ancient temples and saffron robed monks, exploration of the Four Thousand Island area where you might spot one of the endangered Irrawaddy river dolphins and a visit to the astounding archaeological site of Angkor Wat. After a night in Phnom Penh, travel south by speedboat across the border into Vietnam and end the trip relaxing in the delta where the Mekong reaches the South China Sea.

This luxury tour is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own ideal tour of the Mekong River and Southeast Asia. If you'd like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Epic Journeys, as well as our Family-Friendly, Multi-Country and Sailing itineraries.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
