The powerful Mekong River courses for over 3,000 miles through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, providing a lifeline for millions of people. As you sail along this vibrant waterway, fascinating scenes of daily life unfold, arousing your mind and senses—the sounds of a bustling local market, opportunities to sample traditional candy and rice wine, fishermen hauling in their daily catch, and master artisans crafting works of art from silk and pure silver. By the end of your journey along the Mekong you will have a better understanding of life along the river and the friendly people who depend on it.
THE INTRIGUING IRRAWADDY
At more than 3,900 miles, it flows from the glaciers of the Tibetan Plateau across southwest, central, and eastern China before emptying into the East China Sea at Shanghai. On these fascinating Avalon river cruises you will sail approximately 650 miles through the most impressive stretch of the river, featuring the Qutang Gorge, Wu Gorge, and Xiling Gorge—collectively known as the Three Gorges. Along the way you’ll encounter village life on the river banks, the beauty of the mountains and river, and will visit the awe-inspiring Three Gorges Dam, the largest hydroelectric dam in the world.
