Four auxiliary aluminium launch boats equipped with four-stroke low emission engines in constant radio communication with the main vessel and with capacity for 10 passengers depart from the Aqua Mekong two or three times per day.
On the Exclusive Private Excursions, with a maximum of 10 guests per guide, you will board one of our 4 aluminium launch boats that will take you to awe-inspiring places that are otherwise inaccessible.
Our experienced river guides lead guests into the jungle on foot, or by bicycle on the riverbanks. You’ll be in search of the Indochina made famous by Marguerite Duras, flooded emerald forests and bamboo stilt villages accessible only by boat, modern worship of the Golden Lotus in technicolour splendor, and remote Buddhist monasteries still home to saffron-robed monks who grant our guests a private audience amid flickering candles and smiling stone Buddhas. Birders will be on the lookout for flocks of painted stork, spot-billed pelicans and the elusive masked finfoot in their last Southeast Asian refuge.
A great way to observe daily life along the banks of the Mekong is by bike. We are the only Mekong River cruise ship to offer our guests complimentary bikes. These all-terrain touring bikes are available for both adults and children. Cycle the flat paved and dirt trails next to the river ride the 8- to 15-kilometre biking routes. Stop to photograph catfish sellers, stilted Khmer houses and ornately embellished pagodas, the planting of rice paddies or local children playing with the family’s domesticated water buffalo.
Take advantage of eight double-kayaks throughout various locations in Cambodia. In Koh Oknha Tey, for example, guests can paddle to see local silk-weavers at work, or kayak the Moat Khla region by Tonlé Sap Lake and the waterways in the Kampong Chhnang Province.
