Best Asia Cruises:
A Mekong River Cruise

Our recommendation for the best Asia cruises? A Mekong River cruise. Sit beside monks at Buddhist temples, visit small rural villages, bike through charming landscapes, float flooded forests by skiff and see modern cities like Ho Chi Minh City. A Mekong River cruise from Cambodia to Vietnam includes a visit to UNESCO World Heritage Site Angkor Wat. Unsure what the best Asia cruises are for you?

Best Luxury Cruise in Asia:

Let AdventureSmith’s experts find the best luxury cruise in Asia for you. We often recommend a Vietnam River cruise, for riverboats with designer suites, elegant social areas, five-star regional culinary delights, devoted service, special access to Buddhist temples and top-level guides ready to share their expert knowledge.
