River Cruise Destinations: Vietnam

From the magnificent towering limestone karsts and secluded waterways of Halong Bay, to the majestic mountain town of Sapa; on a Vietnam river cruise the spectacular scenery of Southeast Asia envelops you at every turn. A gorgeous kaleidoscope of color and wonder, Vietnam’s unique culture and history is proudly on display in its ancient pagodas, lively markets, rice paddies, charming people and world-famous cuisine. 

You’ll be mesmerized by the blend of stunning monuments, colonial architecture and multi-colored landscapes that characterize a river cruise through Vietnam. Sail the majestic waters of the Mekong River, unearth the distinctive cultures with expert guides, stay in centrally-located hotels, and sample the region’s tantalizing flavors on our most intimate and luxurious Asian river cruise escape. 

Vietnam River Cruising Overview

Ho Chi Minh City will enthrall you with its energy and passion for life, from gorgeous Beaux Arts architecture to sleek skyscrapers; cutting edge fusion restaurants to hot and crusty baguettes sold along the tangle of streets. Yet amongst the developing skyline it is still possible to feel as if you are in the city of Graham Greene’s ‘The Quiet American’ as you walk around the historical grouping of French colonial hotels. 

Known as the ‘Paris of the East’, embrace the ‘joie de vivre’ as you immerse yourself in the French influence of Hanoi. Established for over 1,000 years as a bustling marketplace, explore the 36 streets of Hanoi’s Old Quarter – each street traditionally dedicated to a specific item such as silk or sugar. Long an inspiration for writers, poets, and painters, let yourself get lost in this dazzling labyrinth of hues and flavors. 

Elegant and graceful, the port of Hoi An is a town destined to delight. The World Heritage-listed Old Town with its staggering collection of homes, temples and warehouses combine to make this a wonderful example of a perfectly preserved South East Asian trading port. Pay homage to the Japanese, Chinese and Vietnamese traders that inhabited it for centuries and receive a rare glimpse into this timeless city that is yours for the taking.

Exclusive Experiences: Vietnam

Our exclusive experiences will take you to the cultural heart of life that has been established over centuries around the waterways of Vietnam. During both your river cruise and tour these spectacular encounters will unveil a heartbeat of authenticity, offering a truly treasured insight into the pulse of the people and the land in which they reside.

There are few experiences more awe-inspiring on this planet than meandering through the World Heritage-listed Halong Bay. With over 1,600 uninhabited limestone karsts and islets rising out of the deep jade waters, this is one of the world’s most prized treasures.

Alternatively, experience a hands-on cooking class with a visit to Hoi An's colorful central market after picking out your own ingredients. Travel by boat along the Thu Bon River to the stylish Red Bridge restaurant, set amongst stunning tropical gardens and featuring open air pavilion dining. This is the perfect place to learn how to whip up authentic Vietnamese dishes and sample the delicious results.

Culinary Delights

Diverse and delicious food experiences are one of the highlights of your Scenic river cruise. Our chefs draw inspiration from the regions you travel through, so all our food is seasonal and regional, as well as freshly prepared and mouthwatering.

From the ‘heaven on earth’ crunch of Bánh Xèo to the belly warming traditional Pho, it will be almost impossible to know what culinary delight to indulge in first. Fragrant and sophisticated, Vietnamese cuisine is considered to be simply one of the best in the world. A fusion of ancient flavors and modern influences, this is your chance to sample a host of delicacies as you make your way along the length of this country.
