"Journey from Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam north to Siem Reap in Cambodia as you cruise along the mighty Mekong River."

At 2,700 miles the Mekong River is the longest waterway in South East Asia, and it stretches incredibly all the way from China to the south Vietnamese coast, draining in the South China Sea. This cruise navigates the Lower Mekong, travelling from Ho Chi Minh up past the Cambodian border to Siem Reap. Take in panoramic views of the landscapes alongside the river, from traditional rural life in the Mekong Delta to the golden-spired temples that line the river's banks in Phnom Penh. During your journey you'll get the chance to visit villages and towns, experiencing a taste of South East Asian life and plenty of delicious local delicacies. A highlight of the tour is surely the stretch surrounding Kampong Cham, where the glorious scenery includes gleaming rice paddies and ancient Khmer temples.

The majestic Jayavarman is considered the father in Heritage Line’s “family” of cruise ships. This vessel was named after Angkor’s most venerated king, who ruled from 1181 to 1218, and was a devout Buddhist. King Jayavarman oversaw the construction of some of the most famous temples in Angkor, including Ta Prohm, Preah Khan and the unforgettable Bayon.  Along with its peaceful beauty, the Mekong Delta is known for its friendly locals. The crewmembers of The Jayavarman are no exception. From the moment they board, guests are made to feel at home. Offering exceptional service, comfort and style, The Jayavarman is a name to remember. This beautiful vessel is an unforgettable means of exploring some of the finest scenery in Asia.
