Rainforest Cruises, a premier provider of exotic river cruise travel packages, is announcing the addition of a new Luxury Mekong River cruise, the Mekong Jewel. It is scheduled to sail the Mekong River through Vietnam and Cambodia from October 2020.
Designed for the Mekong River, the luxury cruise vessel will provide luxury amenities, services and state-of-the-art facilities. Highlights include a panoramic sky lounge, private balconies in all suites, a guest to staff ratio of 2:1, and sustainable practices on-board, which means ‘no plastic’.
A river cruise in Cambodia and Vietnam is an ideal way to tour these emerging destinations. The Mekong Jewel covers vast distances in areas where infrastructure is still developing, and visits numerous destinations, allowing for an intimate look at life on the river as it was centuries ago, with the unspoiled beauty of ancient temples, surrounding landscape, and local people. Its 34 indulgent suites and on-board facilities that set new standards in all aspects will allow travellers to optimise their time on-board and off-board, with expert guides leading an itinerary covering the best of these destinations. Visit the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, the spectacular Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, experience a water blessing by the monks of Wat Arang, admire the French architecture of the Opera House in Ho Chi Minh City, among other exciting highlights.
