    River Cruise Experiences

    River Boats give a totally different perspective of a country to the traveller….life slows down as days laze into one another….but all is not relaxation! Excursions include exciting mini voyages of discovery - including tiger spotting, bird watching, local sightseeing and cultural highlights. All the boats are luxuriously outfitted - many rekindling the days of colonial splendour. Discover the Mekong River - the lifeblood of the land and visit incredible Angkor Wat. Cruise the Irrawaddy, to see magnificent teak Monasteries and solid gold pagodas. In India travel the mighty Brahmaputra; sail down the Hugli River between Calcutta and the Ganges, or relax aboard 'kettuvallam' - traditional rice barges in Kerala.
