Asian River Cruises
With such modern cities as Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore, vibrant village markets, stunning natural landscapes and fascinating cultures, few destinations are as exotic as Asia.
Asian river cruises offer a mix of destinations and diverse ports where the settings range from bustling cities to bucolic rural countryside.
Asian river cruises give passengers opportunities to sample myriad experiences that would be much more difficult to do on a land tour of the region. Traveling on the rivers also allows passengers many chances to indulge in local cuisines, interact with ancient cultures, witness awe-inspring landscapes and explore regions dating back thousands of years.
Moreover, Asian river cruises give passengers the ability to explore Asia’s exotic cultures from the comforts and conveniences available on Western-style river cruise ships.
The Avalon boat is actually a part of the Pandaw fleet http://www.pandaw.com.
Dress-code is smart casual for dinners, during the day it is very hot.
We have booked a Mekong River cruise with Avalon Waterways in December of this year. The boat is small, only 16 state rooms. We want to pack smartly and are wondering what the weather is like; and what type of clothing for dinners on the boat in in the hotels would be suitable. In addition, tipping for the guides and crew.
