If you’ve never visited an Asian country, you’re missing out on a journey into some of the world’s oldest and most fascinating cultures, not to mention many areas of scenic beauty and exotic architecture unparalleled anywhere else on Earth.
USA River Cruises offers the perfect way to experience these remarkable lands with our small ships that can take you through magical places that are unreachable by larger boats.
On the Undiscovered China tour, we’ll take you on a tour of the Yangtze River. The Yangtze is one of the world’s longest and most well-known rivers and holds great importance to the people of China. Over 18 days, you’ll experience a variety of breathtaking sights, including a visit to Beijing and the Great Wall, Xian’s Terra Cotta Warriors and the Bund of Shanghai. You’ll see endangered pandas in Changdu and explore China’s most authentic old town, Lijiang, with its warrens that line the canals. The trip includes a 5-night sojourn along the river during which you will gape in wonder at its towering Three Gorges Dam, the world’s largest power station and a modern marvel of engineering.
Then there’s the Vietnam, Cambodia and the Riches of the Mekong River cruise
This otherworldly journey transports you to supremely exotic locations. As you wind your way through the Mekong traversing two of the most scenic countries in Southeast Asia, you’ll be immersed in a timeless world of mist-shrouded mountains, festive floating markets, vivid green vistas and mysterious, ancient temples. Sites to explore along the way include a Buddhist monastery, the Royal Palace and the stunning Silver Pagoda in Phnom Penh, which houses countless ancient national treasures. You’ll sample regionally-inspired cuisine on our deluxe river cruise ships, which offer a pool on the sundeck and spa treatments.
With Myanmar Explorer,
