The Mother of Waters

From its source high up in the Tibetan Plateau, the powerful Mekong River courses for over 4,000 kilometres through Asia, providing a lifeline for millions of people. Sailing through Vietnam and Cambodia on a Mekong River cruise delivers an unforgettable fusion of distinctive sights, colourful cultures, and ancient traditions.

Whether hearing historic tales in the Viet Cong’s Cu Chi Tunnels or participating in a traditional water blessing ceremony with local area monks, your Avalon Waterways cruise will show you the Southeast Asia that other travellers rarely get to see. By the end of your journey, you will have a better understanding of life along the river and the friendly people who depend on it.
