Asia tour specialist Pacific Delight Tours has debuted a new Mekong River cruise experience from Cambodia to Vietnam, priced from $1,599 per person. The eight-day cruise features accommodations in an outside stateroom on the five-star La Maguerite or Amalotus, both of which are AmaWaterways vessels.

Land-only pricing for the eight-day Mekong River Cruise starts at $1,599 per person, based on double occupancy, for departures through August 2011. In September 2011, departures will be priced from $1,799 per person, based on double occupancy, and then increase to $2,499 per person by the end of the 2011 calendar year.  International airfare is not included, but can be purchased from Pacific Delight Tours at competitive rates from all major gateways. Airport transfers upon arrival and departure are included only when international air is purchased from Pacific Delight Tours.

Highlights of the cruise include visit to Tonle Sap Lake, a UNESCO-designated biosphere; Kampong Chhnang; Wat Kapong Tralach temple; Oudong, Cambodia’s ancient capital; and Phnom Penh in Cambodia. In Vietnam, highlights include Tan Chau; Sa Dec; Xeo Quyt, an important ecological site now famous for its jungle overgrowth, but once used as a base during the French and U.S. wars; Cai Be’s floating market; and Ho Chi Minh City.
