Vietnam is country with a rich history. At the beginning of my cruise on the Mekong river with AmaWaterways, I went to the Independence Palace, which serves as one of the many museums that Saigon has to offer. It’s known as Saigon by its people who live there but Ho Chi Minh City by its government.
On the outside of the museum there were relics of old war planes, tanks and large bombs that were used in the war. That was extremely fascinating for me seeing these in real life as opposed to on television or in a movie theater.
We’d like to take this post to highlight another one of our operators and partners in travel. River cruising is a relatively recent form of travel, and as its popularity increases, it takes something more to stand out from the crowd, whether it’s added luxury, unique itineraries, or the kinds of adventures and experiences that voyagers rate highly and that create loyal customers for life.
One of our top river cruise operators is AmaWaterways. The company is a pioneer of the river cruising movement, and since their founding in 2002, they’ve been an innovator in the market, taking the river cruise experience to new and unique heights of luxury. They understand the benefits of a river cruise and how to best provide them.
