The Mekong River winds its way from the Tibetan plateaus of China's Yunnan province, through the rainforests, plains and rice fields of five Southeast Asian countries before meeting the South China Sea. Temples, trade routes and fishing villages in the river's path are today untouched by time, just as the way of life they represent. Nowhere are the river's riches more apparent than in the neighbouring-but distinct countries-of Vietnam and Cambodia, and we at Planet Cruise Offer special Cruise and Stay Holidays for a full experience.
