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

22 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.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
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!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
