The Big Three: River cruises in Asia

asia

There are a plethora of cruises available on Asia’s waterways. From China’s Yangtze (for which we have chosen the Viking cruise we experienced last year) and the Mekong.

The tours are all incredible in their own right and equally versatile. It’s an unfortunate fact that they are often banded under one heading because, as with Europe, each river has its own characteristics and history.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s River guide 2016, each week we will be running our Big Three feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options. This week it’s river cruises in Asia.

Cruise Adviser top tip

Learn what each river is known for. What is it your client is interested in? The food, culture and history of each river is going to be worlds apart, despite being on the same continent.
