A SUITE DISCOVERY WITH

DEBORAH
HUTTON
AVALON AMBASSADOR
What impressed me most was the thought and innovation Avalon has put in to its suite ships.
They have been designed with their travellers in mind – spacious and stylish, sleek and
contemporary, friendly and relaxed. They’ve thought of the important things like turning the bed
to face the view, while also remembering the little things like making sure there’s good coffee on
standby in the morning. This is really a superb way to travel.

As a first-time river cruiser it was easy to see why this has become such a
popular way to travel. You can wake up each day to a completely different
view, grab a coffee and then steal a little more time in bed to enjoy the
scenery. That’s before you even set out for the day’s exploring.

VIETNAM, CAMBODIA & THE

M E KO N G
RIVER
Over the past 30 years, “change” has been a constant for Vietnam and
Cambodia as they diligently forge paths to the future. Today, these captivating
countries are achieving a successful balance between modernization and
ancient traditions.

6

Extending from the mountainous north to the verdant flood plains of the
Mekong Delta, Vietnam boasts a rich and fascinating culture, striking beauty,
and tantalizing cuisine. A palpable energy buzzes throughout the country,
arousing your curiosity and elevating your senses. City streets set the stage
for a symphony of zipping motorbikes. Bustling local markets paint a picture
of daily life. Breathtaking temples provide the perfect escape to serenity.
And remarkable geological formations—like stunning Ha Long Bay—present
panoramas you’ll never forget. While reminders of the war remain, it is firmly
in the country’s past. The people of Vietnam are eager to welcome you and
share their country, stories, and gracious smiles.
Bordering Vietnam, the remarkable Kingdom of Cambodia intrigues, beguiles,
and fascinates all who are fortunate enough to make her acquaintance.
During its peak from the 9th to 15th centuries, the powerful kings of the
Khmer Empire erected the most extensive concentration of temples in the
world—the magnificent Angkor complex. Since those days, the country has
seen its share of troubled times—from invasion and occupation to civil war
and the appalling reign of the Khmer Rouge from 1975 to 1979. Through it
all, the spirit of the Cambodian people triumphed, and in the early 1990s, the
country began a renaissance. Today, it beckons with its hospitable people,
unforgettable sights, and ancient architectural wonders.
Pulsing through the heart of Vietnam and Cambodia is the mighty Mekong
River. From its source high up in the Tibetan Plateau, the river courses for
over 3,000 miles through several countries, providing a lifeline for millions
of people. Along this vibrant “Mother of Water,” scenes of everyday life will
mesmerize you—from fishermen hauling in their daily catch and chanting
monks to boats crisscrossing the river.
Embark on this inspiring journey and fall in love with the people, the
landscapes, and everything that makes Vietnam and Cambodia extraordinary.
