Cambodia-Vietnam: Healthy Cruising
The rage: Pigging out is no longer the only item to check off on your seafaring to-do list, as healthy cruising tops the list of the latest wellness travel fads. Think on-the-water fitness, spas and even medical beauty amenities.
Hop on the bandwagon… with a 4-day Mekong Discovery Cruise journey from Phnom Penh. Board the deluxe 20-suite Aqua Mekong, Aqua Expeditions’ newest addition to its collection of luxury small ship cruises, and sail down the Mekong River to the humming city of Ho Chi Minh. Feel the stress ebb away with an authentic Asian massage on board—choose from a circulation-boosting Khmer massage or soothing Vietnamese aromatherapy with the healing scent of lemongrass.
Dine on... a bowl full of Mekong river prawns and catfish in the on-deck restaurant, led by Asia’s top ranked chef David Thompson. Foodies can even take a tour with the chef to Chau Riverside Market where he sources fresh ingredients. From $28,380 per person, available July-Nov from aquaexpeditions.com.
