Lux­ury afloat

Mekong River

Hong Kong Tatler - - Great Escapes -

Ja­cada Travel launched a five-star “float­ing ho­tel,” Aqua Mekong, in Septem­ber. The boat trav­els through Cam­bo­dia and Viet­nam along the Mekong, one of the long­est rivers in Asia. It fea­tures 20 suites, a plunge pool and two spa treat­ment rooms. Guests get to soak up the lo­cal cul­ture in style and dine on re­gional del­i­ca­cies pre­pared by ex­ec­u­tive chef David Thomp­son. Guided ex­pe­di­tions through the jun­gle or into lo­cal vil­lages are avail­able. One of the high­lights is Viet­nam’s Tra Su Ca­juput For­est, which boasts 70 species of ex­otic birds. ja­ca­da­travel.com
