Cambodia gay cruise tour

 

A traveler cruising the Mekong is in close pursuit of a glorious past, retracing significant human accomplishments and cultural highs. From the flourishing of the Khmer empire from the 9th to 15th century from to the prominence of Theravada Buddhism in present-day Cambodia and Vietnam, this is one of the few cultural destinations on Earth that’s best explored on a river voyage.

Take this all-gay journey of a lifetime aboard the award-winning Aqua Mekong river cruise ship with a fun group of gay passengers for a truly immersive, meaningful and personalized luxury experience in this culture-rich landscape.

Aqua Mekong Excursions

The Aqua Mekong offers excursion and activity options that run concurrently, so guests get to choose between an active outing or a more laid-back option according to their preferences.

Guests can also do something more active in the morning, and something more relaxed in the afternoon, or vice versa. With groups no larger than 10, excursions are also more insightful and intimate for each guest. A fleet of ergonomically-designed, low-emission sheltered launch boats — the only privately-owned fleet of skiffs on the Mekong — takes guests to shore from the Aqua Mekong, ensuring efficiency, comfort and utmost safety.

Aside from riding in tuk-tuks, the undulating elevation of the Mekong countryside is perfect for cycling. On the Aqua Mekong, guided cycling excursions are available from Day 2 of the cruise to the penultimate day. Top-of-the-line, all-terrain Cannondale bicycles sail with the Aqua Mekong, able to tackle any terrain in comfort and safety. No two cycling excursions in an itinerary are the same, so guests get to experience a different slice of Mekong life and culture with every ride.

In Cambodia, guests aboard the Aqua Mekong also have the opportunity to kayak, with the ship carrying eight double-kayaks for excursions on the Mekong’s waterways.
