The Big Three: All-inclusive river cruises in Asia

The Big Three: All-inclusive river cruises in Asia

European waterways are the bread and butter of many of the major river operators. However, that’s not to overlook the Asian programmes that are on offer.

From the mighty Mekong to the holy Ganges, these are rivers that are often far more alive than their European cousins. The three cruises we have chosen all offer something completely different. However, they do share one thing in common — you will be travelling in the absolute lap of luxury.

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 all-inclusive river cruises in Asia.

Cruise Adviser top tip

Major holiday operators such as Belmond and Uniworld are backed up by large parent companies and so can offer land tours to bolt on to river cruises within their own stable of companies. Meaning your customers can seamlessly go from one to another.
