The journey on the mekong river

  1. 1. The journey on the Mekong River with Mekong Cruises The upper Mekong, people say, is one of the most difficult rivers in the world to navigate. Your comfortable cruise ship Mekong Sun masters tight gorges, labyrinths of sandbanks and mounts violent chutes. Water levels are prone to drop about 2 m overnight. On this part of the Mekong quiet and calm parts of the river alternate with most dramatic and exciting shore sceneries: Tropical lush green mountains, impressive rock formations and secluded villages along the river banks. The journey on the Mekong cruises includes visits to the lovely UNESCO World Heritage Site Luang Prabang, one of the most beautiful towns in South-East Asia and rates number one destination Along the Mekong north of Luang Prabang, mekong cruise in Laos by Times Magazine! Traveling along the secluded and impressive landscapes in northern Laos and into the once notorious region of the Golden Triangle is even today an exciting and life enhancing experience.
  2. 2. The refore, many tourist boat agencies operating on Mekong River is planning to increase the number of ships and trips along this river in 2012. Example from Vietnam Paradise Travel Company, one of suppliers for travelling boat along Mekong River, this company provided tours from Ho Chi Minh City to Angkor Watt. Other agencies such as Indochina Sails or Transmekong also have similar ambition to sufficiently exploit this potential tour.
  3. 3. Besides trips to Ho Chi Minh City with Cruises on Mekong, some agencies also open more trips to other destinations along the river, especially parts from Tien Giang Province of Vietnam to Cambodia. This is a good sign for development of tourism industry in Mekong River Delta in particular and Vietnam in general, especially when there are numerous negative predictions about recession in tourism industry due to global economic crisis. This also demonstrates that Vietnam is still a potential market for exploitation tourism industry.
