Run by: G Adventures

Reference number: AVVSPW

From: £659.25

Think Southeast Asia is just beautiful, beautiful landscapes? There’s a lot more to it. (Though, the landscapes are indeed crazy-beautiful.) On this five-day river cruise, you’ll hop aboard bikes, tuk tuks, or local boats to get around and see rice paddies, monasteries, and local businesses. The magic of the Mekong aside, river cruising gives you a view unlike any other, with visits to the Cai Be floating market, where you’ll learn about fish farming, pottery, and sugar palm production before wandering through more local markets.
