Aqua Mekong A Classy Cultural Immersion

[10/11/14] 

We consider ourselves very particular travellers, and we’re sure you do too.

We enjoy creature comforts and intrepid exploration in equal measure; we prefer our adventures be audacious but our martinis chilled; our landscapes remote and awe-inspiring , but matched with stellar cuisine. And we’re not alone – today’s world wanderer comes with higher expectations, and a desire to combine the road less travelled with a few urban perks.

Enter Aqua Expedition’s newest ship, the Aqua Mekong, taking bookings on Cambodia’s stunning Tonle Sap Lake and the mighty Mekong River now. The brainchild of Italian-American man’s man Francesco Galli Zugaro, who pioneered luxury adventure on the Amazon, Aqua Mekong features distinctly modern lines by Saigon-based architect David Hodkinson through 20 spacious Design Suites, each of which boast king-sized beds, window walls, and Nespresso machines. You’ll spend your days exploring remote floating villages, artisanal silversmith workshops, and guarded bird sanctuaries with a fleet of military-grade skiffs and a team of well-trained guides, and then return to walk-in rain showers, massages in the spa, signature cocktails in the chic upper deck lounge, dinning by Michelin marvel David Thompson, and even a dip in the sundeck plunge pool with new found friends.

After all, what’s adventure without company?


Aqua Mekong
Three, four and seven night itineraries are available from US$4,000 per person inclusive of all meals, selected beverages, transfers, and excursions.
