The Mekong River cuts a stunning course to the very heart of Southeast Asia, flowing through lands of colour, vibrancy and tradition on its route from source to sea.

A Journey Through the Cultural Tapestry of Southeast Asia

Amongst the most biologically diverse rivers in the world, the Mekong's fertile banks have been supporting life for thousands of years. Visitors are often surprised to learn that the river's ecosystem is the second most diverse on the planet, providing a home for 20,000 plant species, 430 mammals, 1,200 birds, 800 reptiles and an estimated 250 species of fish.

Passing through six countries, the river stretches for a staggering 2,703 miles, making it the 12th biggest in the world. Each mile is buoyed by colourful history and tradition, providing a natural gateway to the cultural heart of Southeast Asia.

A river cruise on the Mekong from Emerald Waterways allows you to marvel at some of the continent’s most revered sights, from the vast Angkor Wat temple complex in Cambodia to the French Colonial architecture of Ho Chi Minh City. You’ll experience life from a local perspective, learning the traditional customs and ways of life which the people of the Mekong have enjoyed for over a thousand years.
