Aqua Expeditions is honored to host our guests in the historically and culturally rich countries of Vietnam and Cambodia in Southeast Asia. From one great river in the Americas to another, situated on the opposite side of the world, Aqua Expeditions sails into Asia on the Aqua Mekong, journeying up and down the iconic Mekong River.
Here, between the thriving cultures of the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam and Cambodia’s ancient ruins and colonial charms, Aqua Expeditions delivers unprecedented international luxury and local intelligence to our discerning and adventurous guests.
For travelers already familiar with the alluring exoticism of Southeast Asia, a luxury cruise on the Mekong River offers a fresh perspective and deeper insights into the diverse history, esoteric cultures and remote nature of this flourishing region.
Guests enjoying their first or 51st visit to Southeast Asia may wish to deepen their exploration of this fascinating region by traveling to the 300-plus ancient Khmer temples of Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the restful beaches of Sihanoukville, the equally languid hills around Dalat in the Vietnamese highlands, venturing into the modern melee of Saigon, also known as Ho Chi Minh City, climbing aboard a cyclo to explore the winding lanes of old Hanoi or donning a snorkelling mask to plunge into the rich marine waters off the legendary China Beach.

Food onboard the Aqua Mekong rivals anything on land. David Thompson, our Consulting chef, drew inspiration from the local flavors of Southeast Asia to design every dish. With seafood sourced directly from the Mekong River area, Mekong’s fresh fruits and vegetables harvested just onshore; the flavors will not disappoint.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all something to marvel, with panoramic views from the dining room ensuring you won’t miss a second of the mighty Mekong or impressive landscapes that pass by.
Choose the Vietnam cruise that rivals the rest.
While any Vietnam cruise can offer you the sights of the Mekong and stop at its most popular ports, the Aqua Mekong takes it above and beyond, showing you a unique and up-close view of the remote areas around the Mekong River.
Expert naturalists carefully plan daily excursions, ensuring that you are exploring the best areas of the Mekong for the specific time of year. With our bikes, kayaks and private speedboats, you can get up close to life around the river whenever you wish.
It’s the Vietnam river cruise you never expected to experience.
