Why we recommend Aqua Mekong

"Glide between Siem Reap and Ho Chi Minh City in luxury on the Aqua Mekong, an elegant cruiser that’s inspired by traditional Khymer and Vietnamese building styles. The vessel is made entirely out of materials produced along the Mekong and the rooms offer sophisticated design with floor-to-ceiling windows, furnished balconies or sizeable living areas. The pool area is a welcome bonus."
