Victoria Mekong

The Mekong River

The Mekong River is a trans-boundary river in East Asia and Southeast Asia that is an estimated length of 4,909KM. It is the twelfth largest river in the world and the third largest in Asia.

The aquatic biodiversity system of the Mekong is the second highest after the Amazon. It is home to the largest recorded freshwater fish, weight approximately 300kg in 2022.

We offer a variety of tours that include a cruise along the Mekong River, from part of one of our escorted group tours or cruise-only itineraries. A list of tours and itineraries is available by clicking here (opens in new window).

Onboard the Victoria Mekong

Experience authentic Vietnam and Cambodia in real style aboard the newest ship on the Mekong River - our very own Victoria Mekong. The Victoria Mekong is a 4-star ship and one of the newest ships in the region, launched in 2019.

As the only vessel to cruise this part of the delta, Victoria Mekong offers exclusive four- and seven-night itineraries to hand-picked ports along one of the most enchanting stretches of the Mekong. This magical section of the river delivers wonders at every turn, from the lush, green landscapes of Vietnam up to Cambodia’s enchanting capital, Phnom Penh.

The Victoria Mekong is the greenest ship on the river blending state-of-the-art eco-credentials with four-star comfort and superior service. All efforts are made to eliminate plastic from the ship including complimentary refillable bottles in the cabins with water stations located on each deck, waste bins lined with washable inserts (no plastic bin bags), no plastic straws, and no plastic bags or containers used for food delivery.

With just 35 passenger cabins you are guaranteed a genuine ‘small ship’ experience. Spacious, stylish staterooms all come with floor to ceiling windows, private balcony and individually controlled air conditioning and on board you'll find an infinity pool, spa, gym, movie room, games room, boutique and even mini golf.

Local tipping is customary on your Wendy Wu holiday, however it is not always clear who it is appropriate to tip and how much. All tipping onboard the Victoria Mekong is included. All other tipping, such as tips for guide & driver before and after your cruise, bathroom attendants or hotel porters that are taking luggage to your room, is at your discretion based on satisfaction of services received, as are gratuities for additional requested special services.

We recommend approximately:

US$8-10 per person, per day for your guide

US$3-5 per person, per day for your driver

If a restaurant hasn’t included a service charge, a 10-20% tip is recommended
