Cruise through Vietnam & Cambodia with APT

Posted November 1st, 2015

From dramatic landscapes to flourishing cities, friendly locals to captivating history, the attractions of Asia are truly legendary. Experience the beauty of Vietnam and Cambodia as you embark on a luxury journey by river and land with APT.

APT’s luxury land journeys and Mekong River cruises are the ideal way in which to take in all the iconic highlights throughout Vietnam and Cambodia, whilst also immersing you in the local traditions and customs which are unique to each destination. Adding to this, English-speaking APT Tour and Cruise directors accompany every journey, and local guides share their hometown insights in many locations.

Choose from a wide range of itineraries that reveal some of South East Asia’s most enthralling sights and destinations. Explore the bustling streets of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City; journey into the remote mountains of Sapa; wake to the ethereal scenery of Ha Long Bay; explore the temples of Angkor Wat; and admire the palaces of Phnom Penh.


APT’s all-inclusive cruise along the Mekong River is an enduring favourite. Sailing between Ho Chi Minh and Siem Reap, the journey reveals the heart of Vietnam and Cambodia. Along the way, small group shore excursions allow guests to experience life in the remote riverside communities and floating villages.

The journey is enhanced thanks to the refurbishment of APT’s luxury river ship, the RV AmaLotus. Relax in all new public areas including an air-conditioned lounge adjoining the Sun Deck, a Wellness Centre and the stylish French-inspired Le Viêt Nam Café. An undeniable onboard highlight is the new and exclusive private dining room, Indochine by Luke Nguyen, which hosts just 16 guests and presents a special degustation menu designed by the renowned chef.

There is a remarkable relationship between the local cuisine and history in Vietnam and Cambodia and with APT it’s yours to experience with the help of acclaimed celebrity chef, author and television personality Luke Nguyen, who returns in 2016 as APT’s Ambassador.

Inspired by his extensive travels, Luke has shaped a number of exclusive culinary experiences which feature on every journey through Vietnam and Cambodia. From a special Vietnamese dinner aboard APT’s Mekong River cruises to an exciting dining event in Ho Chi Minh City, his culinary experiences offer an unrivalled insight into the flavours and traditions of his homeland.

Luke will personally accompany two exclusive departures in 2016, strictly limited to a small group of guests. During these culinary journeys Luke leads guests through the back streets of Old Saigon to watch locals cook street food and explore the area where his parents grew up. In addition, take part in a cooking class at his Grain Studio, dine at a restaurant he has personally recommended and get to know Luke as he shares his passion for the region and the Vietnamese cuisine.

For those wanting to travel further, APT has combined their Vietnam and Cambodia itineraries with journeys through China, including a river cruise along the Yangtze River. Guests can also experience Vietnam and Cambodia as well as the mysterious wonders of Myanmar (Burma) meandering along the Irrawaddy River.

Embark on an unforgettable journey showcasing the history, culture, flavours and traditions of Vietnam, Cambodia and beyond, enhanced by APT’s knowledge and expertise. Call one of our expert cruise consultants on 1300 954 661 today or find more Vietnam & Cambodia Deals here.
