Destinations

Vietnam

Vietnam is many things – it’s the exciting energy of the Ben Thanh Markets in capital Ho Chi Minh City, the scent of lemongrass as you learn to cook traditional cuisine. History comes to life while exploring the depths of the Viet Cong Cu Chi Tunnels, and insights into river-side village life unfolding at every bend while gliding down the Mekong. Cast off and live it up on board your private oasis with Avalon, where an adventure of quiet indulgence awaits on an Asian river cruise.

Cambodia

Captivating Cambodia will cast its spell upon you as you Go Live It Luxe with Avalon on a Mekong River Cruise. It’s impossible to resist feeling a tingle watching the sun set across Angkor Wat, indulging in the scent of fresh croissants in a Phnom Penh bakery, or while watching silversmiths turn pure silver into artworks using age old techniques. We’ll bring you a world less seen, while you take time to breathe in one of Asia’s most charming countries with Avalon Waterways.

Myanmar

Myanmar, a country on the frontier of tourism, is emerging as a cultural supernova. Live it up with Avalon Waterways where your Irrawaddy River Cruise is akin to walking through the pages of National Geographic. Feast your eyes on the thousands of temples at Bagan, invigorate your palate with decadent local delicacies prepared by our expert chefs and feel the buzz of connection as we introduce you to school children, monks and farmers. Each turn of the Irrawaddy reveals a new adventure on an Asian river cruise with Avalon.

India

From the desert of Rajasthan to the backwaters of Kerala, a trip to India is a journey into a new world. With diversity around every corner, you can choose your own Indian adventure with Avalon Waterways. Tour the Mughal architectural wonders of Jaipur, from pink Hawa Mahal to the to the golden Amer Fort. Be awe-inspired by the hustle and bustle of big-city Mumbai, the home of glamorous Bollywood. Watch the white stone of the Taj Mahal glisten in the morning sun in Agra, as you learn about the emperor’s love for his deceased wife. Breathe in all India has to offer as you live it up with Avalon Waterways.
