Browse our Asia Cruise Holidays

he beauty of a cruise is that you can sit back comfortably on the sundeck and watch as the breathtaking scenery and local life float by. Board a replica steamship and drift down the Mekong River from Siem Reap, Cambodia, to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam. Or hop on and off a sleek cruiser to experience the culture found along the Irrawaddy in Myanmar. Asia’s rivers, bays, and seas are an essential part of the travel experience, and any trip to Asia should include at least one night spent on the water. Check out some of our favorite voyages, and see what you can do on a tailored Asia cruise with us.

Don’t forget, there’s plenty to do off the boat too! Go for a hike in the rainforests or splash around with the village kids who know all the best swimming holes. Later, scarf down smoked fish and fresh fruit at riverside stalls.
