Travel deals: Set sail on the Mekong's most modern river cruiser and save $1000

Viking's 15-day Magnificent Mekong cruise between Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi includes savings of up to $1000 a couple when booked before November 30.

Setting sail in September 2021 and designed to navigate the mighty Mekong River, Viking Saigon has been built to reflect the elegant Scandinavian design principles for which Viking is so well known.

Accommodating just 80 guests, Viking Saigon will be the most modern vessel on the Mekong. Those on board will be exploring one of the world's most scenic regions in superior comfort, whether relaxing on their hotel-style bed in their chic stateroom, or unwinding on the sun-drenched Aquavit Terrace.

Cruising the mighty Mekong River offers up an intoxicating fusion of east and west as you travel from Vietnam to Cambodia. From ancient pagodas and 12th century temples to dense forests and picturesque waterfalls, this is a place where natural and man-made wonders coexist in peaceful harmony.

Shop old Hanoi's markets, stand in awe of the ancient Angkor Wat where jungle vines embrace the ruins and discover a myriad fishing villages, temples and monasteries and floating markets.

Priced from $7695 a person, if booked before 31 October, the booking secures Viking's Risk-Free Guarantee, with the freedom to change plans up to 24 hours before departure.
