Mekong River Cruise - Lost Civilisation
Henry Mouhot Club
Mekong Cruise - Lost Civilisation
From its source high in the Tibetan Plateau, the Mekong River winds through China, Burma, Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia before breaking into tributaries in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta.
The glistening rice paddies, tangled fruit orchards and floating fish farms of the Mekong Delta all depend on this river’s bounty.
Cruise between Saigon and Phnom Penh in Cambodia and on up to the magnificent temples of Angkor and discover age-old ways of life supported by this majestic river.
This two-week Mekong River Cruise holiday includes pre and post accommodation and an 8-day cruise on the luxurious Jayavarman, one of the finest boutique river cruisers in Asia.
As with all of our river cruise holidays, this one can be tailored to suit your interests and budget, so just let us know your preferences.

The majestic Jayavarman is considered the father in Heritage Line’s “family” of cruise ships. This vessel was named after Angkor’s most venerated king, who ruled from 1181 to 1218, and was a devout Buddhist.
The Jayavarman’s design was influenced by the French cruise liner Normandie, which launched in 1935. Traveling between Saigon and Phnom Penh, the Jayavarman marries the art deco charm of 1930’s France with the romance of Indochine.
There are just 27 cabins on the Jayavarman.
Thanks to its intricate woodcarvings, Khmer bas-reliefs and Vietnamese lacquer paintings, this impressive cruise ship resembles a floating art gallery.
With three-and-a-half decks the Jayavarman is as spacious as it is beautiful. Guests can admire Khmer artifacts in the Henry Mouhot Lounge, mingle in the Club 1930 Bar, dine in the elegant Indochine Dining Hall, and recharge with spa treatments in the Apsara Spa.
A Jacuzzi is located on the top sundeck, which offers spectacular views of the passing delta.
Henry Mouhot Lounge
Named after the French archeologist who discovered the Angkor temple complex, the Henry Mouhot lounge is the perfect place to curl up with a book.
The Lounge has a decidedly scholarly air about it – the furniture is made out of teak, the colours are soothing and the artefacts carefully chosen to bring back memories of the past. The Lounge has free Wi-Fi.
Club 1930’s Funnel Club & Lounge
Be transported back to 30’s and 40’s in the Club 1930 Bar and Funnel Lounge - a spacious, airy and luxurious venue with comfortable sofas and chairs.
Indochine Dining Hall
It is difficult not to be wowed by the Indochine Dining Hall. Breakfast is lit by the early morning rays of the sun which stream onto the white table covers.
Romance fills the dinner atmosphere with soft lighting and relaxing music.
Is this a Private Tour or a Group Tour?
All of our tours are private tailor made itineraries, customised for you - we can amend things to entirely suit you.

Shore excursions on the Jayavarman are conducted on a group basis.

Which Airlines do you use?

Which Hotels do you use?

We have some of our favourite hotels suggested which we think are appropriate to combine with a cruise on the Jayavarman.
Do you cater for Solo Travellers?
Yes, we have many solo travellers, and Vietnam is a very safe, friendly and welcoming destinations for those travelling alone.
River cruises on the Mekong are a popular option for solo travellers, especially with Heritage Line who offer no Single Supplements on many departures.
Why should we book with you and not directly?
Because we are one of Heritage Line's best supporters from the UK, we have the very best rates to pass on to you, which should make it cheaper than booking directly.
All of our holidays are priced in Pound Sterling which means you are not exposed to currency fluctuations and poor exchange rates if you are paying for your cruise in US Dollars.
Your holiday also enjoys full financial protection through ATOL and the Travel Trust Association by booking with us.

How does your office in Vietnam help?
We have our own staff in Saigon which helps in many ways with our customers in Vietnam and South East Asia.
