At a Glance

Aqua Expeditions began with small-boat luxury cruises on the Peruvian Amazon but in the years since, the company has gone global, also offering voyages in Indonesia and the Galápagos Islands and, aboard the Aqua Mekong, in Cambodia and Vietnam. This dedicated 20-cabin vessel, the first five star boat on the Mekong, features cabins with floor-to-ceiling windows (some suites have balconies), lush furnishings, California king beds and the ability to interconnect with other suites for families or friends traveling together. Meals highlight the best of Cambodian and Vietnamese cuisine and are crafted with ingredients sourced from along the Mekong. Off the boat, guests can enjoy such activities as cycling along remote country roads or kayaking to meet silk weavers with guides who grew up along the river.

**The Standout:**The seven-night itinerary from Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh (or the reverse) Don’t Miss: Adding on a few days to see Angkor Archaeological Park, just outside Siem Reap. Aqua Mekong begins and ends itineraries in Phnom Penh (but in high-water season, the boat goes into Tonle Sap Lake, even closer to Siem Reap).
