Itineraries include guided jungle treks, a visit to the Pak Ou caves – which showcase limestone karst formations and thousands of Buddha images left by pilgrims over the centuries.

The cruise also offers ‘Gypsy’ an ultra-exclusive two-cabin cruiser along the Mekong for up to four passengers

“Our guests are travellers who desire not just a unique travel experience, but one that enhances the ambiance of the destinations,” Minor Hotels CEO Dillip Rajakarier explains, “Mekong Kingdoms cruises harken back to the days when the journey is savoured as much as the destination.”

Mekong Kingdoms cruises joins Minor Hotels’ existing fleet of Manohra Dining Cruises in Bangkok and Anantara Overnight Cruises that sail from Bangkok to Thailand’s capital of Ayutthaya.
