Viking Saigon has begun its inaugural season in Southeast Asia.
Purpose-built for the Mekong River, the 80-guest ship sails between Kampong Cham, Cambodia and Mỹ Tho, Vietnam on Viking’s 15-day Magnificent Mekong itinerary. With the 2022-2023 season now underway, regular sailing dates are available through March 2023; the 2023-2024 season begins in July 2023.
Wendy Wu Tours has released a VIP edition of one of its most popular itineraries – Classic Mekong, featuring Cambodia & Vietnam.
The tour starts amongst the temples of Angkor before guests join Wendy Wu (company owner and founder) on a three-night river cruise down the Mekong on the Victoria Mekong cruise ship, with shore excursions designed to provide an authentic glimpse of local life.
Scenic has a new nine-night river cruise on the Mekong River and new Scenic Freechoice experiences, with the release of its new 2022 and 2023 South East Asia itineraries.
Adam Burke, Scenic journey designer, says while the locations guests explore onshore are similar to the seven-night cruise, they will see a greater diversity of the riverside landscape. ‘Scenic Spirit sails in the afternoon with more time to absorb the essence of Vietnam and Cambodia, and additional time to relax on board.’
