What's the most comprehensive way to experience the world's biggest continent? By boat, of course! The advantage of a Asian cruise on a small ship is being able to visit small ocean and river ports, villages and places where large cruise ships simply cannot reach. Cruise down the Mekong River on the Jahan or Aqua Mekong and acquaint yourself with some of the most interesting sites and peoples of Cambodia & Vietnam, like the floating village of Chhnok Tru or the communities of Buddhist monks. The Amapura, Road to Mandalay, and Meta IV were especially designed to take you into the land of pagodas & temples in Myanmar. And no ships beat the experience you'll get exploring Vietnam aboard the Indochine or the Amadara. Or try the five-star Paul Gauguin, which brings luxury to Indonesian South Pacific cruises.
