Whether it be the Mekong in Vietnam, the Irrawaddy in Burma, the Ganges in India or the Yangtze in China, Asia has on offer a great variety of cruising options all throughout the continent. Rather than repeatedly packing and unpacking your suitcase and battling traffic on congested roads, you’ll be able to just kick back on the sundeck, order another cocktail and take in the breathtaking scenery as you float peacefully by on your luxury cruising vessel. 

Some parts of Asia are best appreciated from the water, you will get an insight into the lives of the local people who live alongside these mighty rivers and see parts of these countries that cannot be reached by any other means of transport. All cruises offer you the opportunity to disembark your vessel and enjoy land excursions to experience the true local lifestyle and to see some of the most interesting and beautiful landmarks along the way.

All our Get About Asia cruise itineraries adhere to the highest standards of safety whilst providing our guests with an outstanding level of comfort and quality. Our cruises make a fantastic holiday of their own accord or can be used as an exciting add-on to your Asia tour. Discuss options with our Asia travel experts today.
