    The Victoria Mekong

    Cruise the Mekong with Wendy Wu on their brand-new eco-friendly vessel

    Wendy Wu
    about 2 months ago

    Wendy Wu’s Victoria Mekong is a state-of-the-art vessel boasting four-star comfort and superior service. She employs cutting-edge technology and her eco-credentials are impeccable – by the time her recycled water is returned to the Mekong River it is already drinkable! Elsewhere, solar energy is harnessed to help power the ship’s systems, whilst a high-tech, super-quiet power plant gives her a cruising speed of 6 knots and a brisk top speed of 11 knots.
    However, speed is seldom of the essence. More important, perhaps, is her shallow draught that allows her to cruise the parts of the Mekong Delta that other vessels simply cannot reach! With just 35 passenger cabins including two, two room suites, passengers are guaranteed a genuine ‘small ship’ experience. All cabins have a private balcony and individually controlled air conditioning. Prices start from as little as £1,620 pp for a 4-day fully inclusive tour with flights.
