A Journey to the Cultural Heart of Southeast Asia

The dynamic waters of Southeast Asia navigate a land of vibrancy and colour, where local people hold true to age-old customs and relics of ancient civilisations litter the landscape. At Emerald Waterways, our inclusive EmeraldPLUS and EmeraldACTIVE excursions allow you to immerse in the cultural charms of the region — bringing the true spirit of Southeast Asia to life. 

Travel to the awe-inspiring Cu Chi Tunnels of Ho Chi Minh City, and learn about the skills and resourcefulness of the Viet Cong soldiers as they fought a guerilla war against the US. Next, board a traditional-style Vietnamese junk for an overnight cruise in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Halong Bay, one of the world’s most beautiful natural landforms. 

One of the highlights of cruising the Mekong River is a visit to the Angkor temples of Siem Reap. This extraordinary historic site features several distinct temples, the most impressive of which is Ta Prohm. During your visit, you’ll have chance to explore much of this amazing heritage site, from the Bayon Temple to the Terrace of the Leper King.
